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 2022-365: Glory

I was at worship and put on some music.  I don’t do it often but today it seemed right.  The hymn “Oh, That Will Be Glory for Me” came on and I stopped to listen to the counterpoint and harmony.  I was struck by the repeated mention of the joy of looking at Jesus’ face.  In my everyday thinking that seems strange.  How can I understand?  

As so often happens when I am thinking of the questions of life I thought of my grandchildren.  I reflected of the joy of looking at my grandchildren, just sitting and watching them.  This joy can multiply when they are in an attentive mood.  If you don’t have grandchildren then maybe you can think about a spouse or a favorite pet.  

That is just a taste of eternity.
