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 2022-328: Advent Calendar: Day 8, You Put Your Left Foot In...

Behind the eighth door you will find a little chocolate foot.  John is trying to break out.

(Luk 1:41 KJV)  And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
I don’t know if you have been around pregnant women or men who have wives going through their first pregnancy.  One of the great recreations is to feel the baby kick.  Having been there I find myself wondering what was so exciting about this.  I guess if I was as old as Elizabeth I might get excited also.  A previous verse tells us she was in her sixth month so maybe this was the first big jolt.  What makes it special was that the Holy Spirit moved in her and had her speaking out like a prophet,
(Luk 1:42 KJV)  And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
Some women just groan and complain.  Other women prophesy.  

It is amazing how attitude effects everything, even a baby kicking.  How you respond to this season also says a lot about attitude.  Be a blessing to those around you.  If you can’t find anything else to be happy about then consider that you are not six months pregnant.
