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 2023-316: New Term: Music of the Spheres

For some reason the phrase “Music of the Spheres” popped into my head.  There is no explanation of how my head works.  I wondered if it came from the Bible because it is used in at least one hymn.  Could it be the foreknowledge of God involving all of the music that would be written by mankind through the ages?  Are there parallel words for other areas of life?

My speculation didn’t work out, according to a search the term goes back to Pythagoras, not the Bible.  Still it is a great phrase.

Another interesting fact is that when you use Google to do the search, the first page, at least, is made up of commercial purchases by a group called Coldplay.  You gotta love Google.  They would sell their soul to the highest bidder.  I guess they already have.

There are times when I feel Google is an insult to my intelligence but then it occurred to me that it might just be my intelligence that is the problem, not Google.
