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 2020-320: Never Too Late for the Incarnation

Another Christmas Day has come and gone.  We spent this one in Virginia with my children and grandchildren.  It was a glorious time of year because we were all together.  It was a sad time when we looked out our window and realized how many people are living in fear.  We had a tree, Christmas music, Christmas cookies, the joy of watching a toddler and a crawler open presents and an awareness that Christmas marks the day of the Incarnation when God became man.  We know what Christmas is all about.

For those who have missed it and suddenly wake up, it is not too late to celebrate Christmas.  Technically the four weeks before Christmas are called Advent.  Then you have the 12 days of Christmas ending on Epiphany which is January 6 next year.  So you see, you are still in the Christmas season.  Orthodox churches celebrate the birth of Christ on Epiphany, so you have company.

So if no one said it to you, “Merry Christmas.”
