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 2024-064: Dark Thoughts: Hunting Zombies

On Easter Sunday as we were eating dinner, we were discussing different aspects of the resurrection story and the crucifixion.  One of the events that we found puzzling was all the people that evidently were raised from the dead, and came out of their graves at the moment of Jesus death.

(Mat 27:52 KJV)  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
(Mat 27:53 KJV)  And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
Someone asked what happened to them?  Someone else suggested they went home to see their families?

I have no idea.  The Bible doesn’t tell us, but this morning, sitting in the dark, I wondered what Jesus did during the time between his appearing in the upper room and his ascension.  We have a couple of events related to us, but most of it is history.

It occurred to me that perhaps he was out gathering up these wandering souls and bodies and returning them to their graves.  Or he could’ve been gathering them and sending them straight to Paradise.  We will never know but these are the strange paths that my mind goes through sitting on the porch in the morning.

Yes, you can pray for me.
