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 2022-333: Advent Calendar: Day 10, Jilted Joseph

Behind door ten you find a lawyer.  Joseph found out that Mary was pregnant and he knew he was not the father.  I can’t imagine the sense of loss he was feeling.  In spite of his pain and anger he was still going to do the right thing.

(Mat 1:19 KJV)  Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
You think you got problems.  

God had a solution.  He sent an angel special to Joseph to explain the situation.  We hear a lot about what a wonderful young lady Mary was, I think Joseph was right up there in line for sainthood also.

If things are not going the way you expect then as the saying goes, grab hold, buckle up, hunker down and enjoy the ride.  Keep in mind who is in the drivers seat.
