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 2024-085: Organization

We tend to want to put things in their boxes to be able to find them, and to know where everything fits.  Or at least some people think that way.  Some people are only capable of organizing their socks in a drawer by color.  Others can organize the pantry.  What one person can do better the other person often ignores.

I was thinking of how we knew my grandmother had visited.  We could find nothing.  She would come over and totally re-organize the kitchen.  Everything was still there.  It would make sense to her.  But everything was be in a different place.

Is that the way we are in theology?  Philosophy?  Cooking?  Organizing our library?  (You do have a library, don’t you?)  Doing your laundry?  Think of how much hostility would be eliminated if we would simply assume it is a matter of putting ideas in different colored bags.

Are some people incapable of organizing?  Maybe our way, but if they were totally out to lunch they would never have any lunch to eat.
