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 2023-329: SUV Nativity

At Christmas time we have numerous Nativity sets spaced around our home.  Children are always encouraged to play with them and our grandchildren take advantage of that.  It leads to a healthy amount of mix and match, but it is good education.

Then comes the time to pick them up.  We noticed that one stable was bare and no matter how hard we looked we could not find the correct inhabitants.  Finally, in desperation, we asked our grandson if he knew where they were.  No problem.  He knew exactly where they had been stashed.  

It turned out that he had managed to get the entire cast into the back of one of his “goes”.  It was a jeep type vehicle with a back that opened.  There they were, on their way to Bethlehem.  I don’t remember reading about a Jeep in the Bible accounts but there is no mention of a donkey or camels either.  Use your imagination.  Think like a three year old.

Until January 6, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
