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 2017-114: Mistakes

My daughter got married last year.  It was a glorious time.  She found the right man.  It was a time of establishing a new covenant.  As I was praying for her and her husband I found myself praying that she would be able to avoid the mistakes she saw her parents make. 

It occurred to me that our mistakes have the value of being warning signs for those who know us.  It is wonderful to think that we can learn from our mistakes.  It is an indication of how God put the world together that others can learn from them.

I have heard it and observed it:  The things that bother me about other people are often the patterns I am demonstrating in my life.  So I continue to watch and listen.  I live in hopes that your mistakes will teach me things I could never see in myself.

And thank you for being irritating.
