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 2024-079: Porch Praying

One of the questions is often in my mind is the nature of prayer.  I have a hard time with the shopping-list form a prayer.  To me it is much more of a conversation, a relationship and ongoing communication.  As I sit on the porch, basking in the presence of God, I find that much of the time I don’t need to say anything.  Much of the time I don’t even need to follow a train of thought.  It is often enough just to sit and know that I am in the presence of Almighty God.
