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 13, Was Santa Really a Woman?

Some things are right in front of us all our lives and we don’t see them.  The clues are clear.  The meaning is obvious.  I want to submit the hypothesis that Santa is really a woman.

Think about it.  In English we do not have gender designated by the definite article.  “The” is “the” is “the.”  The ending of words do not show gender.  This is not true in the Romance language.  If you live in Southern California you are used to the differences between San and Santa.  We have San Francisco and San Gabriel.  We have Santa Rosa and Santa Ana.  Do you see the pattern?  Santa is the feminine ending.  I don’t know where the legend of Santa Claus began but someone must have none something that we do not. 

Santa Claus is a feminine noun.  We are going to need to redo all of the pictures, songs and poems.  We might as well get started now.  And remember, you heard it here first.

This is a good example of thinking things through logically as I mentioned in the previous post.
