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 2012-65, Should-a-Beens: Al Gore Returns Nobel Prize

I check out the headlines of the National Enquirer when I am in the grocery store.  They are good for a laugh.  I also keep hoping to see certain headlines.  This is one of them.
“Al Gore Returns Nobel Prize”
I don’t expect to see it.  The Nobel prize has become another version of Saturday Night Live.  It has a lot of humor masquerading as important viewpoints.  Think of Barak Obama getting a Nobel prize.  He was nominated before he was elected president.  What are his accomplishments?  He has written two auto-biographies.  Of course he did promise to stop the oceans from rising and since they were not rising I guess he succeeded.  Or how about Yasser Arafat getting the Peace Prize.  Really?  That is kind of like Rodney Dangerfield getting the Respect Prize.

I don’t live in hope, I live in fantasy.
