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 2023-221: Another Shoe Drops

Today I am going to a funeral.  I am expecting to possibly shed a few quiet tears over the death of a man I hardly knew.  The tears will not be for him or for me.  They will be for the empty spot beside his son on the pew next Sunday.  

They will be tears of joy.  If you don’t understand that then you need to get more serious about who Jesus is and the hope that we have in Him.  I am at the age where the second shoe could drop and they will call for the cremation team.  I hate to tell you, but so are you.  It doesn’t matter how old you are.  I hope to be taken by surprise.

I am ready.  So was he.  I find myself smiling.
