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 2023-302: Price Tags for Eternity

What seems like a cute little Christmas song, “Little Drummer Boy” carries a bit of insight,

“I have no gift to bring that’s fit to give our king”
How true of all our lives.  God still glories in our gifts like a grandparent accepting the artwork of a three year old.  Recently my grandson proudly brought me a bit of his work.  As artwork it was nothing to write home about.  As an expression of love it was awesome.  

I think that is how God responds to our works of love.  There is nothing we can do that compares in absolute value to a sneeze of the Almighty.  What even God cannot force is a freewill offering given from our hearts.

Let one of your gifts this Christmas be a work of love for the Father.
