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 2020-139: Thanks Thoughts: Patience

As I was sitting in the building dawn, listening to the birds and enjoying the coolness before the Texas day, I was being thankful.  I am so blessed that the range of gratitude is not capable of approaching adequate. 

One point of thanks is always God’s grace and the salvation offered through the blood of Jesus.  That may seem weird to those who don’t believe.  I can understand that.  Today I was also struck by the patience of God.  It is a wonder that the human race has been allowed to continue.  I am a splendid example of that human race.  God is patient with me.

I rejoice in His patience and pray that I would challenge it less today.
