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 2022-114: Headlines: We May Be Forced to Cancel Easter

Just when you think things can get no worse you see a headline like the one at The Daily Wire:

“Easter Is The Latest Holiday Hit By Inflation; Candy Prices Surge, Supply Shortages Abound”
On the positive side it may save the lives of a few chicks and keep the blood sugar down on a lot of Americans.  I consider it my patriotic duty to not buy any chocolate bunnies.  I will leave them for the needy.  It does make you wonder what the disciples would have done two thousand years ago if they had been faced with a lack of colored eggs.

It is a good thing that the resurrection is not influenced the same way as Easter.  Jesus coming out of the grave on the third day is what we celebrate.  I invite you to celebrate also, no extra charge and no shortage of forgiveness.

Full disclosure:  I didn’t read the article and don’t expect you to either.

He is Risen.

  1. He is risen, indeed! My first thought, when reading that headline, was that nothing can cancel Easter, and most certainly not anything having to do with the modern trappings folks have piled on.

    1. As much as they try the hope of the resurrection will still be real.

      Grace and peace


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.
