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 2022-289: Thanks Thoughts: Yard Work?

This morning I found myself in a strange position.  I was grateful for being able to push the lawn mower.  That does not make sense.  I have never enjoyed yard work and have been able to avoid it most of my life.  Now suddenly I am thanking God for the task.

It is amazing what a little thinking and change in perspective can do for you.  I just had my annual physical, excuse me, wellness check.  In the waiting room there was a good example of people in my general demographic.  There were obviously a lot of problems present that I did not have or expect to have.  Or picture going to the grocery store and seeing the people in the electric go carts.  Every morning when I go for a walk the first thing I do is thank God for my mobility.

I think we all have a lot to be grateful for if we stop to consider.  I am not yet to the point of being grateful for the ability to get down and scrub a toilet, but the day may come.
