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 2016-85: Celebrate, Observe, Acknowledge, Concede

Take you pick.  Which verb do you associate with?  Today is commonly called Easter Sunday.  Whether you like the word or not, it is the day that the non-Orthodox branch of Christianity set aside to remember and emphasize the resurrection of Jesus.  It is the most significant event in the history of salvation.
(1 Corinthians 15:14 KJV)  And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Christians celebrate and observe this day.  Many don’t like the word “Easter” so might refer to it as Resurrection Sunday or some other term but they still celebrate and observe.  They acknowledge the history even if they question the etymology. 

My understanding is that even sceptics will concede that Jesus existed and the evidence seems to indicate that at least the people of His day believed He rose from the dead.

So take your pick.

He is risen!

He is risen indeed!
