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 2013-107: On the Street: It’s (Gonna Be) Raining, It’s Snowing

What is a California City boy doing driving in the snow storms of the East coast?  Visiting my children, of course.  Children put us into all kinds of strange situations. 

When I got up this morning it was to look out on a winter wonderland.  The trees were covered with marshmallow fluff and big glumps of white stuff were swirling down.  Interesting.  The problem is I had to get out and drive in it.

It has been over 30 years since I had to do this.  I was in Boston for the Blizzard of ‘78.  They declared marshal law and shut down the roads.  We knew we were on the road to recovery when the first relief supplies began to make their way down the snow choked roads on four wheel drive vehicles.  What were the first supplies being brought in?  Cases of beer.

I remember how the California boy had to go pick up the locals to go to church board meetings.  I am not sure if it was the call of duty, arrogance or stupidity that had me out driving then.  I should have assumed the locals knew something I didn’t.  Since I had a rear engine VW with radials I never got stuck but it could have been a case of God looking out for fools.

Today I made it across town.  More snow is forecast and I will be out in it.  Wish me luck.

  1. You won't need luck, He's still watching out for you, CHILD that you are! (Thought you might prefer THAT part of the old saying as opposed to the other.)

  2. Right. We don't have luck, we have blessings. Good point.

    Grace and peace
