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 2013-106: On the Street: Travel and the Sequester

I just flew across country, changing planes one time.  As much as it disappointed me, I did not see any holdups bigger than usual because of the sequester.  When I travel I always refuse to get a free x-ray so I have the pat-down.  The only issue was the total violation of my Constitutional rights of due process and probably cause.  The actual procedure was done professionally and with courtesy.  I am sure that some of King George’s tax men were professional and courteous, too.

My wife always seems to have issues but it could be because she makes insulting remarks to people.  She has found that by taking her black cat with her it tends to speed things up because so many of the people working for TSA seem to be extremely superstitious. 

Happy travel.

  1. Ignorant people usually ARE superstitious, Pumice; and no truly intelligent person would have the job.

  2. Just another thought, I don't suppose that it's ever dawned on the TSA that someone could just start shooting, or trigger a bomb while they're surrounded by waiting passengers and TSA agents. Naw! THAT would require LOGIC!

    1. "Logic." What is that? Anyone who can call Islam a religion of peace has surrendered the claim to being logical.

      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.
