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 2018-308: Raison D’etre

What is your reason for living?  It is early in the morning and still dark outside.  My body is still waking up and my mind has not been dulled yet.  It is time to wax philosophical.

Why get out of bed?  Why change my underwear?  Does it make any difference if I shave today?  What is the meaning of life?  All of these questions go together.  The answers play a big part of how we come to decisions and what the results are.

Take our stereotype of the corrupt politician.  What motivates someone to sell a country of over 300 million people down the drain to put a few dollars in their bank account?  What makes homosexuals come out in support of Islam?  Why did feminists support Bill Clinton?  Why should you return the extra $10.00 the car hop gave you in change?

It all goes back to your reason for living.

Maybe you never ask those kind of questions.  Maybe your big concern for the day whether your concoction at Starbuck’s is the right temperature.  That in itself brings up questions.

I hope you like your answers.

Merry Christmas.
