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 2016-14: Ode to Old: Sunday Morning

When I was young with small children and very involved in the church, Sunday morning was a rat race.  It seemed like a major challenge to get where we needed to be, ready to do what we needed to do, when it needed to be done.

Now I am old, have no children at home and am not able to be involved in any kind of leadership.  Sunday morning has become a time of leisure.  I can see why people who only came on Sunday morning for the 11:00 service and warmed a pew thought everything was great. 

It helps that I don’t stay up until 1:00 A.M. and can’t sleep late. 

I guess there are some benefits to getting old.

  1. Unfortunately, for every silver lining, there's a cloud. lol

  2. I think a true optimist would have claimed a gold lining.

    Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
