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 2024-040: Deep Thoughts

I was again sitting on the porch and staring at the beautiful colors of the morning.  It has begun to warm up enough that a jacket and a cup of hot coffee make for a pleasant contemplation.  It dawned on me that what is happening here is I was whetting my appetite for eternity.  A repeated thought I have is, “If it is this good now, what will it be when I have perfect vision and my ears stop ringing?”  If I didn’t have grandchildren to enjoy I might be ready to go.

I could not do this if I were not retired.  I rejoice in the opportunities of retirement.  If you see me I am not necessarily taking a nap and I am not depressed.  I am thinking deep thoughts.  If they turn out to be shallow thoughts then maybe I can at least make them wide.

Sharpen me Lord; get me ready.
