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 2013-52: Immortal Quotes: Or Maybe Not

“Some people’s survival is better than another person’s cutting edge.”

What a great quote.  Who said it?  I did.  When I part with a friendly neighborhood philanthropist that I see at my coffee stop in the morning I usually tell him, “Go forth and do good.”  Today he responded, “I am just going to try to survive.”  That is when I came up with this brilliant insight.

Like it?  I did, but I am a bit involved. 

I guess the opposite is also true:  “Some people’s cutting edge is another person’s survival.”  That fits me best, but I like the first one better.
