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 2023-228: Thanks Thoughts: Happy Extra’s Day

Did you ever stop to think how the dance scenes with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers would look without the extras?  Where would Superman have been without a crowd to stand, looking up and shouting, “Look!  Up in the sky....”  Where would you get an excuse for being late if it were not for all the peasants clogging up the highway in front of you?

We don’t stop to think about what unknowns strangers do to make our day.

Somewhere in the world is the worker who put the ink in the bottle that I use to fill my fountain pen.  Someone picked my coffee beans.  Someone assembled the drawers on my grandfather’s desk that I use every day.  You get the picture.

There are so many people who make so many little contributions that make the world go round.  Where would we be if they did not show up for work.  Where would they be if I had not made my littel contributions through the years.  It is awesome how a free market makes it all come together and we can enjoy it.

So, take a moment and thank God and all those unseen faces for the contributions to your life.
