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 2017-010: Thanks Thoughts: Blessed Irritations

On any given day I am constantly blitzed by people driving like bats out of.  It can be irritating and frightening.  It seems like they run in packs and the packs are getting more frequent.  I don’t know how many people I have seen ignoring red lights this week.

I find myself being thankful for these self-centered twits.  I am finding they are a constant reminder of who I am and whom I follow.  I am finding the same thought process when I am forced to listen to radio commercials.  I realize they have no appeal because my priorities are based on a different reality.

I am learning to take the lemons of life and add the sugar of eternity.  They cause me to review why I drive with courtesy and why I don’t rush out to buy the latest gadget.  They make me thankful.

  1. The bats are from Ohio. Trust me, they invade my state constantly, though they may have different licenses where you live.

    1. In California we don't need a stupid license. It is considered a civil right.

      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.
