Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-242: Why?

I assume that across this country atheists and agnostics will celebrate Thanksgiving?  Why?

Thanks requires an object.    Do you thank a stop light for changing color?  You don’t thank a stone for not tripping you.  That would be as silly as cussing it out when you stub your toe.  But then, I guess we do that, don’t we?  That may be why people call it Turkey Day.  At least they can thank the turkey. 

People who believe in God have a reason to be thankful.  Better, we have a person to thank.  We should do it more often and with greater sincerity.  This day is to remind us.

I hope you have something to celebrate.
