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 2024-057: Tired of the sunrise

As I sit here enjoying the morning, I begin to wonder how much more glorious it will be in eternity.  I wonder if I will ever get tired of watching the sunrise.  It will be more glorious, more colorful, more of everything.

With that in mind, it occurred to me that I am not tired of watching the sunrise now.  The earliest I can remember really getting overwhelmed by a sunrise was the morning I was coming down the grapevine to an awesome panorama of California’s central valley.  I was probably around 18.  So using that as a possible beginning, I figure it is been over 58 years since I began enjoying sunrises and I still love them.

I don’t think I will ever run out of sunrises to enjoy, or the excitement of watching them develop.

In eternity, assuming that sunrises are still available, I might be able to choose the location of my sunrise.  I might be able to watch the sun come up from the top of Mount Everest.  I can certainly go back to the beach of Maui, and revisit the meadow in the mountains.  There are vistas everywhere that I can see.

Maybe I will be able to witness some of the creative acts of God.

I could title this death thoughts.  You certainly have a different perspective on death and eternity when you are coming from a position of a believer in Jesus Christ.  It brings to mind Paul’s statements about death.  

(1Co 15:55 KJV)  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Great thoughts as we approach the celebration of the Resurrection.
