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 2024-136: Morning Miracles

As I sit on the front porch, looking out into the darkness and glorying in God’s creation, one of the things that struck me this morning was that I was sitting on a porch overlooking the hill country of Texas at a house which was purchased by my wife.  You may wonder why that would suddenly hit me.  I knew it before we moved in.  This is the woman who wanted to be blocks from the best hospitals and around the corner from great shopping.  We are 13 miles from the nearest gas station.  This is glorious.  I would have never believed that my wife would buy a house in this location.

It is a miracle.  I don’t even remember having the nerve to ask the Lord for something like this, or to expect it, yet here it is.  He often takes better care of us than we would even think of.
