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 2016-313: Thanks Thoughts: Technology

It is the day after “Thanksgiving” and I am beginning to play Christmas music.  It makes me thankful for modern technology.  A combination of CD’s, lap top and I-Pod make it possible for me to collect all my Christmas music, legally purchased, and shuffle it so that I can listen to the joy of the season without the pollution that is passing for Christmas music today.

I don’t know if you ever tune in to the radio stations that are claiming to be all Christmas music.  I used to tune in and get enough good stuff to keep listening.  Every year there is less music celebrating the incarnation and more informing us of some tragic love affair in December.  Not only is it musically handicapped but it is morally vapid.  Because of modern technology I can go anywhere and listen to pieces that are worth listening to.  I currently have enough to listen to 1.2 days of music without repeated.

Merry Christmas.

  1. I have very mixed feelings about Christmas, but I love the music. Modern "music" of most any kind isn't worth listening to. It's not just because we're old codgers, either, it truly is repulsive.

    1. I think I would go with the 80/20 rule on modern music when I am in a good mood and have not been to contemporary worship recently. Since I attended such a beast yesterday, I am more in a 99/1 mood.

      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.
