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 2022-262: Hope and Roses

It is time to wake up and tend the roses.




Pulling the weeds.

It isn’t enough to smell them any more.

The roses are getting desperate even if they don’t know it.

Don’t forget I Peter 3:15.

(1Pe 3:15 NAS77) but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;
Make them ask.  If you have the hope Peter is talking about you are a giant step ahead of the people around you.  In spite of that they probably won’t want to hear what you say.  Listen for potential open doors that are accompanied by minds and hearts.

Answer with kindness.  Accept the fact that when it comes down to it, they may not be interested in the answers.

Love them enough to be willing to try.
