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 35, Got Bulbs?

I am constantly amazed at how out of the loop the general population is.  Are you one of those who is not aware that your federal government, in a bipartisan action by the previous administration, has voted to take away your incandescent light bulbs and force you to buy florescent substitutes?  You know the type.  They look like a cork-screw, often take forever to light up, don’t give very much light and burn out long before advertised.  And don’t forget they are more expensive.  You know the ones you may have tried and decided not to get any more because they were not a step forward in technology.

Did you also know that they were loaded with mercury?  Yes, that mercury, the one you are warned about when you eat fish.  Your federal bureaucracy has seen fit to require you to bring them into your home in the name of saving the environment with energy efficiency.  Did I mention that if you break one in your house you are considered an environmental disaster area and should really call for a Haz-Mat team to come clean it up.  I hope you enjoy the energy you are saving.

I am amazed how often in casual conversation I meet people who are totally oblivious to this.  Oh, yeah, they don’t vote or pay much attention to other issues either.  If you doubt, do a Google search and see for yourself.

Remember, people get the government they deserve.  What kind of government do you deserve, one that forces you to bring poison into your home to further their green dreams?
