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 2013-143: On the Street: Pretty Ignorant

We had just finished a session of the state testing and we were all feeling foolish.  For some reason that history does not record I started singing as I walked down the hall, “I feel pretty, oh, so pretty...”  One of the girls squealed, “Oh, that is from a movie.”  I was impressed until she opened her mouth again, “The movie ‘Anger Management’.”

I tried to explain that it was from a musical called “West Side Story.”  She was having none of it.  For the rest of her life she will think that “I Feel Pretty” is from a video she saw at school.  I keep trying to tell these kids that someday their ignorance will keep them from getting a job or a promotion.  They don’t believe me.  I hope she can manage her anger when things are not pretty.

Ignorance grows exponentially.
