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 2024-141: One Size Fits All

When it comes to t-shirts and cheap hats this is a joke.  It can’t happen.

With Jesus it is a different story.  Unlike caps, we don’t have to keep adjusting Him until He fits.  Unlike spandex, He does not get stretched out of shape to reveal all of our flaws.  

Think of it more like a giant bath towel.  In my opinion I have never met a bath towel that is too big.  Little people can just wrap it around more times.  Big is a blessing.  

There is a sense in which Jesus is the same for all of us.  He redeems us.  He saves us.  

There is a reality in which Jesus meets each of us in a unique way.  We have different personalities and experiences.  He is flexible enough to form fit and begin to mold us from where we are.
