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 2017-267: Good Mornings

I am beginning to walk in the morning again.  In California I would walk in the evening, after work.  Now I can do it before the sun comes up.  As I come out the front door the horizon is just starting to warm up and the black is turning gray.  By the time I finish the gray is morphing into pink with promise of orange.

Texas mornings are different from California evenings.  The first morning I saw something rush into the trees as I approached.  I have no idea what it was.  Another morning when the moon was overhead the shadow of a soaring bird crossed my path.  Today when I returned I noticed a couple of strange shapes on the lawn and managed to get the eyes of a deer and her fawn to shine back at my flashlight.

It is also amazing how the temperature can vary as I walk.  It goes from cool and refreshing to the verge of sultry and back again.

The adventure continues.

  1. You would be well advised to carry a pistol and watch out for snakes, not that the two are automatically related.

    1. Don't have a Texas CCW yet and my wife keeps telling me about snakes. When the moon goes away I will worry more.

      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.
