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 2022-335: Advent Calendar: Day 11, Enduring Illusions

Behind door eleven you will find a chocolate donkey, or you would have if there had been a donkey to find.  Most people don’t realize that there is no donkey mentioned in the Bible.  If there had been it is possible that no one would be riding.  It would carry all their baggage.

There is nothing wrong with having a donkey included in your nativity scene.  It is not a theologically important point.  Just don’t expect one behind door eleven.  There is also a lot of discussion about what Jesus was laid down in and where he was actually born.  The important point is that He was born at just the right time.

God has a sense of timing that is never off.  Accept it even if it is like the donkey and you can’t see it.

Merry Christmas.
