Day 18: The Triple O
Father. Son. Holy Spirit.
Scripture. Liturgy. Prayers.
Orthodoxy, orthopraxy and orthopathy.
Getting it right
Orthodoxy, orthopraxy and orthopathy can be defined generally as “Right doctrine, Right practice and Right feeling.”
I have been thinking about this. Meditating on it. I think you see my Anglicanism with the reference to liturgy: the how of worship. And the last four years in an ACNA Church has reminded me why I missed the Episcopal Church of my youth. The physicality of liturgical worship uses one’s body to worship in agreement with your mind and spirit.
But the orthopathy has been a little different. As prayer, fasting and the help of the Holy Spirit has driven certain sinful tendencies from me, specifically in my case anger, I was experiencing something unexpected: some serious procrastination.
What I figured out was I used the anger to not only try to drive others, but to drive myself. So I’m praying for the right motivation. The right driver. The God ordained way of acting in a timely manner.
I’m praying my way through it. The post I’m still working on is part of this process. I hope to have it done in the next few days.
My sisters and brothers, stand firm in the faith, stay on your guard and do everything in Love.
Soli Deo Gloria
