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 2024-174: Creation Legos

I’m thinking about God‘s creation this morning looking at all the variety that is out there.  God had quite an imagination and was not in any box when it came to putting things together.  We, of course, are used to it and so it’s not considered unusual.  But to be the one to come up with this originally is awesome.

When we think of creation and things being created out of nothing, we tend to think of the material side of the creation.  I think we also need to you think about the immaterial side of creation.  God was not just thinking up new shapes and sizes.  He wasn’t just coming up with materials that have not existed before.  It’s not just a matter of making Adams.  It was a mind looking at plants and coming up with the idea of animals.  It’s the idea of a totally new concepts.  That is the miracle of creation.

Think of Legos.  Any child can take those parts and put them together in different ways.  The original idea of pieces of plastic in a few shapes that could be assembled in a multitude of combinations, that’s the creative part.  Actually it is the same concept that God came up with when He created man.  A limited number of elements, types of cells and the few parts of the DNA and you have a world full of people where no two are the same.

That is quite some God.
