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 2011-347, Still Not a Bargain

Yesterday I went to the library.  I love public libraries.  I have cards in six local cities, Hawaii, Kansas City and I am looking at getting one where my kids live.  They open up worlds.  To give you an idea of how I feel, the only tax I can remember thinking as a possibility was one for libraries.  Fortunately I did not live in the city voting on it or I might have compromised my stand. 

They were having a used book sale.  Fifty cents for anything on the tables.  I think there were five tables and I managed to limit myself to seven books.  If my wife would give me more shelf space I am sure I could fill it quickly.

What I want to alert you to is that there were copies of President Obama’s Audacity of Hope available for only 50 cents.  I think I saw three copies.  Personally I think the price was still too high, just like the price of his presidency, but if you are on the lookout for a copy, you have your chance.  I am waiting for them to pay me to take one home.  I don’t want much, just enough to pay back tax payers all the money he has been giving to his friends.

I am not going to hold my breath.

  1. Well, Pumice, my mother-in-law used say, "Live in hope if you die in despair!"

  2. I assume she does not want me to pick up one of the books for her. I assume the same for you.

    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.
