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 2011-298, Plow and Crown: My Idea of a Catchy Title

We have an ongoing battle between those who want liberty and those who want control.  I have tried to figure out a way to express this battle.  I have decided to use the plow to represent the common people and the crown to represent the elites. 

The plow was the most common tool for most of written history.  As late at the 19th century most people were farmers.  The plow produced food and represents the beginning of civilization as hunter gatherers began to stay in settled locations. 

The crown should be obvious.  Today it might be a clip-board or a limo but you get the idea.  Some people think they are anointed to be at the top. 

The crown can be worn at any level.  It can be the head janitor if you work in an office.  It can be the cop who stops you for “driving while black.”  It can be the clerk that takes forever to stop doing her nails and then determines that you forgot to check a box on the form. 

They are everywhere and they are smothering us.
