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 2012-208, Tax Dollars at Work: Real Homes for Real Trash

A few months ago I was driving through the library parking lot and noticed that they were taking away a few parking places for some kind of construction.  Since the state was in a severe budget crunch I was hoping that this would be something we desperately needed.

I will let you be the judge.

They were building a home for trash.  I use the word “home” on purpose.  This was not an enclosure or a bin, this was nice.  I am not sure I wouldn’t be able to live in it.  They started with decorative concrete block walls.  Not just cheap cinder block, these were the high grade, split concrete to simulate stone.  They added some nice steel doors to keep out the violent and psychopathic no doubt.  To top it off is a roof with Spanish tile.  Nice.

Times can’t be as bad as it seems.  Our local government has money to build houses for our trash.
