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 2022-274: Assumptions

Do you pray for anyone?  Is it regular or sporadic?  An even more important question would be, “How well do you know the person you pray for?”

In many of my prayer concerns I sometimes pray that I would be totally wrong and off base.  By that I mean there may not be a problem, just a lack of information.  I was sharing a concern about a young man who seemed to be treading water spiritually and my son pointed out that he could be very active but keeps it quiet.  Good point and I had no reason to think otherwise.

My thinking was generated in regard to a young family I know of.  I assume, based on what I have heard third hand that they are far from where they should be spiritually.  As I pray for their eternal destiny I pray also that I would be totally wrong.  And it could be.  I am not sure how reliable my sources are.  Many so called “prayer chains” become nothing but gossip clubs.  It is possible that I could be forming my own person one man gossip network.  

How many of our concerns would fit into that category?
