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 2022-341: Advent Calendar: Day 13

I am putting a set of wings behind flap 13.  It is supposed to represent the Heavenly Host that appeared to the shepherds.  Then I had a thought, actually a question, “How do we know that angels have wings?”

So, since I don’t have much of a life, I did a search and did not find “wings” in the same verse with “angel” or “angels” anywhere in the Bible.  I found that the dawn has wings.  It talks about God having wings which I assume is figurative.  I seems to say that the king of Assyria has wings.  Again, I assume that is figurative.  And of course we have the cherubim who are thought to be a type of angel.

So, whether or not angels have wings, God made it possible for them to gather in the sky over the shepherds and give a glorious concert.  That might point out to us that even if we don’t think we have the “wings” we need to do the job, God will enable us.  If not, then He would not have assigned us the task.

May your day be productive and your Christmas be merry.
