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 2023-283: On Your Mark...

I hope you have the alarms set.  I am sure you have everything prepared.  As soon as the last morsel of food is eaten you have official permission to start the Christmas music.

Don’t worry about the overlap with Thanksgiving day.  Christmas is about the incarnation.  It is a collage of Bible concepts from “the fullness of time” to “the Word became flesh.”  That is a lot to be thankful for.  Knowing the truth is something to be thankful for.  

Thanksgiving is a year round thing, or it should be.  The day for those of us who know the glory of God is just an introduction to the celebration of Advent.

Begin the rejoicing.  Continue the Thanksgiving.
