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 2012-225, On the Street: Power to the People!

Has it happened to you?  It is 3:00 A.M.  You are sitting at a red light.  It is one of those intersections with no obstructions.  You can see for a mile in each direction.  It looks like the rapture came and you were the only one left behind.  You seem alone on the earth.  Just when you are about to make a rash decision the light turns green and you go on your way, another moment of your life gone forever.

This comes up because I almost broke down and became civilly disobedient.  I had to sit at a left turn signal installed by a bureaucrat who obviously never drives this route.  If it were a regular signal I could have turned and been on my way.  If it was a stop sign I could have turned and been on my way.  If I wasn’t such a stick-in-the-mud I would have turned and been on my way.  I am getting tired of being law abiding in nonsense situations.

I am considering becoming a civil rights rebel.  I realize this is not on the same level as traditional civil rights protests.  This is almost childish, but I am getting tired of sitting at red lights when no one is going the other way.  I am thinking of starting to make left hand turns before the arrow comes on when there is no one in sight.  Is that wrong?  I don’t know.  I’m asking you. 

Later I saw an old guy in a beat up car get tired of waiting and do exactly that.  I gave him a thumbs up.

  1. That's why Big Brother puts up cameras. Think of all that delicious ticket money from you anarchists! ;-)

  2. Ouch. I was feeling so rebellious that I completely forgot the cameras. It is amazing what you can get used to as the frog is slowly warmed.

    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.
