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 2016-250: Thanks Thoughts: Hosanna

The idea of sitting around the Throne and singing hosannas for a thousand years sounds really boring.  Maybe one of the things we will be doing is finding out about the multitude of times that God’s intervention has kept us from pain and tragedy.

It might need to get a little dramatic.  You could get a glimpse of the pain and suffering you might have gone through if that car had hit you when you stepped out in the street without thinking.  You could look down through time and see how history would have been different if your wife had died in childbirth.  The options are endless.

God protects us.  He uses natural (i.e. God designed) things like the oils in our skin to shield us from bacteria and stomach acid to dissolve all kinds of strange things.  He uses stuck mechanical devises to slow us down and miss the crazy driver.  Use your imagination.  And sing “Hosanna”.
