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 2012-215, “Make My Day”

I was not able to watch the Republican convention.  Part of the reason was that I don’t know how to turn on the TV.  But my wife called and said I needed to watch Romney give his speech.  Okay.  To keep peace in the family I decided to do as I was told.  It only took me about 10 minutes to find the controllers, figure out which one was for the TV and then go through the process of figuring out which buttons to push to find an actual channel that had the convention.  I noticed there was no RNC button on the controller.  So I watched it.

Since then I have begun going back to look at some of the speeches on You Tube.  I just finished watching Clint Eastwood.  I had been reading about how he was disjointed, unscripted and wandering.  Once again I am struck by how many people in Lala media land don’t know which end of a fork to stab their peas with.  Eastwood was not disjointed and rambling.  He was not disoriented.  He was a master actor giving what may be one of his last performances and he did a stellar job.  Anyone who thought he didn’t know what he was doing obviously thinks that Barak Obama does.

November is coming.  Are you being honest about where the country is going or is your head still in the sand?

  1. I thought he was a trifle long-winded, but I'm sure he didn't offend anyone that he hadn't planned to offend. ;-)

    1. I watched on You Tube and might have been called away for a time so I put it on hold. A point to reinforce that he was not rambling was the chair. That was thought out ahead of time.

      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.
