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 2022-246: God and I-Pads

We flew to Japan for the birth of our first grandchild.  It was an awesome time in the genuine sense of the word “awesome”.  Too soon we had to come home and for a long period our only contact was through the miracle of Facetime.  Later as we were waiting for Daddy to be rotated home the child’s only contact with him was through that app.  I had to laugh recently when I saw the Babylon Bee sharing about a grandmother giving her family a tour of the ceiling.  My granddaughter used to take the I-Pad and walk around giving her dad a view of all our light fixtures.

I have worried about the exposure to electronics.  We try to keep the screen time down and read to the kids.  At the same time, I wonder if the early exposure to Facetime will be an element that helps my granddaughter understand the existence of God.  Much of her contact was non-physical and yet real.  That is a lot like our experience of the divine.  

What a great time to be alive.
