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 2021-229: Dry Faucets

Our worlds are so ego-centric.  Have you ever been in pain and felt angry that other people are still happy?  Have you ever lived with someone like that.  

Our water was off recently because of a leak.  I kept thinking in terms of the whole world being without water.  I had to keep reminding myself it is just us and a few more isolated houses around the country.  Everyone else is taking showers, washing their hands, rinsing their dishes and doing laundry.  I was not in peril.  If I was desperate I could drive to my son’s apartment and take a shower or do laundry.  If I was really desperate I could get a motel room.

We all need to be prepared for disaster.  It should be comforting to know that most cases of disaster people face involve a temporary loss of power, a broken water pipe or a flat tire.  A little preparation will go a long way.  A lot of preparation may put you in a position to help someone else.

Whatever you do don’t be like me and think my leak is a national drought.
