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 2017-049: Thanks Thoughts: Whatever

I was working through my blessings and almost passed over my general good health.  I am healthy.  I am thankful.  But there is this thought in the back of my head about the other shoe dropping.  What happens if next trip to the doctor reveals some crisis? 

The answer is that I either believe God is in charge, or I don’t.  If I do, and the other shoe drops, then I will live in confidence about how it will play out.  What is the worst that could happen?  I could die and go to be with Jesus.

If I don’t really believe it, I will fret and fuss.  I will focus on all the possible dark clouds and really start feeling sorry for myself.  It won’t matter how many promises I know, I will ignore them.  Too often that is the route I find myself on.

In a spirit of thanks I will continue to trust, whatever.
