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 2017-016: Manana Mediation

We will not be guilty of procrastination in the next life.

Manana is a Spanish word for “tomorrow”.  It means that I will get to it later.  The reason that works in this life is that often when we procrastinate the unpleasant duty will go away.  If nothing else we will die before we are required to get it done.

That won’t work in eternity.  There will always be a tomorrow or, if there is no tomorrow, today will extend forever.  You will be forced to do it eventually.  Putting it off will not make it go away.  As a result we will learn to go ahead and get it done. 

I don’t know if that is encouraging or depressing.
