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 2011-217, Headlines: The Heat Is Back

You may have noticed that it is hot outside.  I don’t watch network news but I am guessing that they are talking about global warming again.  I am reminded of a joke I heard Dick Cheney tell in a speech.  I can’t find it with Google so let me give a poor paraphrase.

Cheney talked about all the symptoms they attribute to global warming and said he had become a believer.  In fact he was expecting to see dramatic changes very soon.  He then said, “We used to call it summer.”

Don’t get excited about the heat.  It happens every year.  Remember when you were a kid and didn’t have air conditioning.  This is nothing new.

Remember, winter is coming.

  1. Global warming, that's why the winters are so cold. The new terminology is climate change.

  2. Greetings Phillip,

    I lived in Missouri for a few years. They used to have a saying that is claimed by many states: If you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes. It will change.

    Since I am now officially a senior citizen I have a hard time keeping up with all the changes in the meanings of words.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
