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 2024-149: I Don’t Know

I may live to be 105 and die quietly in my bed, surrounded by my great grandchildren, or I may collapse on my way to get my next cup of coffee.  The chances are it will be somewhere in between.

When I think of all the ways I could go, it is troubling.  I could be mugged sitting here on my porch.  I could drop dead with an aneurysm.  I could have a heart attack.  I could develop cancer and go in great pain and suffering.  I could blow a tire and run into a tree.

Or, I could live a long life of joy and anticipation.  I can have lunch with my son today.  I could write great tracts.  I could think great thoughts.  I can influence my grandchildren.

Most of it is about choices.  I choose to live in the joy of the Lord and the freedom of the Spirit.  He can call me home with no notice.
