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 2024-087: Talent

I found myself almost clicking on another short video of the Seekers.  I had always enjoyed their work but I had never heard of them as a group.  

I found myself wondering if Judith Durham, the lead singer, played any instruments.  The rest of the group do their main accompaniment but I have never seen her touch anything.  I wondered if she had any other talent beside singing.  Did she paint or write poetry?  Did she garden or cook?  Did she do open heart surgery when not on tour?  I have no idea.

And to be honest, it does not matter.  She sings.  She sings in such a glorious way that it really does not matter if she does anything else.  There are people like that.  They are so blessed in one area that the rest of their lives are eclipsed.  They are a blessing to our culture and civilization.

I will never say that about anyone involved in rap.  Don’t bother forgiving me.
