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 2013-46: The 23 Cent Difference

I pay two different amounts for my coffee and bread in the morning.  Some days it costs me $2.50 and some days it costs me $2.73.  The order is the same, it just depends on whether they ring it up as “dine in” or “to go.” 

It is only a 23 cent difference.  That would seem to be no big deal but it is a 23 cent difference on $2.50.  A man I know who is into finance says that the hardest idea to get across to people is that financial success is a matter of percentages, not just dollars. 

Taxes are everywhere.  They are oppressive.  They suck the vitality out of the economy and our personal standard of living.  And our dear Governor Moonbeam wants to raise taxes again.

Keep voting the suckers out.
