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 2023-161: Dark Thoughts: And God Said, “Squirrel!”

I wonder if my writing can be an expression of prayer.

I think it can be an expression of worship.  Praise and Thanksgiving come easily from the pen.

I ask this question because it seems like my mind comes up with the greatest questions when I am in the midst of worship.  Are they squirrels or are they inspirations?  At present I am pausing to write the skeleton down and then get back to focusing on the glory of God and His creation.

Part of this is the constant push to not fall into empty ritual.  It is easy to get used to doing things a certain way and they begin to lose their power to mold us and refine our being.  I think we need to be concerned about making God just a stopping point to be checked off.
