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 2012-132, Tax Dollars at Work: Protection from High Winds

Recently I was driving to work and saw evidence that my government cares about me.  As I was creeping through the rush hour traffic I noticed the traffic marque had in large print, “High winds through Mudville.”  The fact that trash was blowing horizontally across in front of my car and my car is rocking is not enough evidence.  I need the government to tell me the wind is blowing.  Personally, at a time when the People’s Republik of Kalifornia is going through a severe budget crunch, I think there might be better ways to spend our tax dollars than telling me the wind is blowing.  But who listens to me?

And should I believe them?  The sign at other times tells me how long it will take me to reach the down town area.  Rarely do I see any correlation between what it says and what I experience.  How can I believe them that the wind is blowing?

  1. It is calm here in South Carolina right now----and I didn't need a sign to tell me. Great Post.

  2. We just spent a week in a time share in western SC. It was a lovely place with a lot of good people. An we had internet access which is more than I can say for the next week in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks for reading.

    Grace and peace.
