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 41, What Should the New Republican Majority Target?

After we get through the lame duck session of congress the balance of power will change.  The Republicans (and any conservative Democrats if they still exist) will have a chance to make a statement.  I have read suggestions about what they should tackle.  Here is the list I have seen so far that I think are doable in the House.

1.  Lightbulbs
2.  Toilets
3.  NPR
4.  Department of Education
5.  Voter Fraud
6.  Soldier’s votes
7.  Sunset for regulations

What would you add to the list?  They probably won’t pass.  They would need to get through the Senate and a presidential veto.  They can make a statement and develop an atmosphere.  The key will be communication.  It will require use of the internet and old media.  It might even involve buying some air time to get the message across.
