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 2024-101: Don’t ask, don’t tell

It seems the newest thing we can’t mention is whether you were vaccinated or not.  The question pops up in my mind every time I hear about someone dealing with cancer.  Our church has two moments in each week where people verbally share prayer requests:  Sunday School and Wednesday evening service.  It used to be mainly elderly falls and heart attacks.  Now it is usually cancer.  The evidence is purely anecdotal but I keep wondering.  

Some would say that at this point there is no reason to ask.  After all, there is nothing that can be done about it.  Part of me agrees.  The other part of me is concerned about sharing the truth with people so during the next pandemic just before the presidential election people will be better informed.

I guess that assumes people would listen.  Since so many people still get their news from the MSM it is doubtful that they would wake up no matter how strong the rose smell is.
