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 2022-072: Mush Battles

My mind starts turning to mush about half way through the morning.  

I am finding that listening to podcasts can firm it up a bit.  It is a risk.  Podcasts can also turn your mind to stagnant pools by the content they feed you, but if you have a solid foundation you can see the nonsense and move beyond it.  Use at your own risk.

This is of even greater worth in the late afternoon and early evening.  If I find myself watching a spot on the wall with my mind turned off I reason that I have nothing to lose by putting a couple of talking heads in front of my face.  Usually it stimulates my brain enough that when I get restless watching the screen I can go to reading again.

Occasionally I even learn something.  It isn’t necessarily important or even true but at least I can learn the mindset of people who don’t seem to believe that there is a God or that He is active in our world.  At best I can be informed by people who actually have something to tell me.

A win/win.

Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
