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 2022-361: Advent Calendar: Day 25, At Last

Behind the last door you find the baby Jesus, but He is not made of chocolate.  He is molded of pure gold.  This is the moment called “the fullness of time”.  This is when “the Word became flesh.”  This is the incarnation.

Christmas season is a glorious time of year.  The day chosen to celebrate becomes almost mystical.  When we went to a Christmas Eve service yesterday I almost came to tears.  

Embrace family and friends.  Lift praise and thanks to God.  If you are one of those who is alone then embrace in your heart.  I rejoice that it is easy for me to say.  I feel no guilt but my heart goes out to you if you cannot join me.

Merry Christmas.  Joyful incarnation.  The Lord is come.
