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 2024-137: One in 10

My prayer today is that I would be one of the 10 righteous individuals God was looking for in our modern Sodom.  God promised Abraham if he could find 10 righteous people he would spare the city.  I know that this is not Sodom.  I am certainly not Abraham.  And yet I somehow feel the principal is the same.  I believe that if there are enough righteous in America, God will spare us.

Let me be one.  I don’t know what the number would be for us today but I sure could use as many on the team as possible.  There are no tryouts like in Little League.  There are no essay questions.  It is just a matter of trusting in Jesus and living the life He wants us to live.

Sign ups begin immediately.

  1. Sign me up! .And let me say that on my own, there's not a chance I'd be one of the righteous, but thankfully He sent the Holy Spirit to poke me when I mess up, and forgives me.

  2. That is a nuance that many don't seem to get or don't want to get. It is true we are lost on our own but we have the promise of the paraclete. We are expected to live up to the level He makes possible.

    Much to rejoice about.

    Grace and peace
