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 2024-068: Falling in Love

What do I do in the mornings?  If the neighbors notice me out on the front porch they probably raise their eyebrows and mumble about that crazy old man.  How do you explain the world of worship.  The best I could come up with this morning is the idea that it’s like falling in love.   Think of a time where you saw someone “across a crowded room”, as the song says.  You understand the phrase, “One enchanted evening.”  You just were overcome by the sight.  You may have never spoken to them.  You might never have a chance to speak to him.  But all you could think about was them.

The analogy breaks down, because as I’m sitting here, staring with adoration at God’s creation, and thus at Him.  I am not ignoring Him, and He is not ignoring me.  I am worshiping that which I love, and that which takes my focus.

Every morning I wonder if it will be another glorious day.  To be honest, some days it is only average.  But other days it lives up to all of the hype.

It brings new meaning to the greeting, “Good Morning”.  Good morning, indeed.
