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 2021-322: Still Brimming with Thanks

I am currently on the east coast getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Since I routinely begin each day with a time of thanks and praise this is not a novel experience but it is a great excuse to set aside other demands and focus on the blessings God has given me.  

I continue to ask God, “Why me?”  I ask it because of the blessings.  My children and grandchildren will gather with us in unity and harmony.  The grandchildren have opinions but those don’t count much.  My children are more conservative than I am.  They are walking in the faith.  It makes for pleasant conversations.  I don’t know why me but I am grateful in spite of it.

Remember that the point of Thanksgiving is that we know Whom to thank.  Knowing Him gives us a totally different understanding of what the future holds and a confidence that no matter how dark it gets we walk in the Light.

I hope that your Thanksgiving is blessed.

Grace and peace.
