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 2024-156: Walking by Faith

God has given us so many things that we take by faith and assumption.  I look at the Texas hillside in wonder.  I think of the bubble of benevolence in which I have walked, that everyday joy provided by Providence.  I look at all of these things that surround me and saturate every day.  I had no way of knowing earlier in life things would work out this way.  I have lived in the assumption that God had a plan and would work it out.

And possibly the greatest part of living by faith is those questions that we can’t answer.  There are questions that we can’t answer because we don’t have the ability to answer them.  There are questions that we can’t answer because we don’t know how to frame them.  There are other questions that we simply haven’t gotten to yet.  We take the answers to those as being part of our walk of faith.

What else is in store?  I am reaching the age called “elderly”.  That has a lot of baggage.  There is a growing dependence on others and loss of “I can do that.”  The adjustments are a daily part of life.  I have made up my mind to enjoy the process and hope that I go quickly when the time comes.

It always helps to know what comes after this adventure of living.
