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 2013-181: Should-a-Beens: The 4th Is Coming

The 4th of July is coming.  It is time to get out your copy of the Declaration of Independence so you can read it as a family before you dig into your barbeque.  We are trying to establish it as a family tradition.  It might be a good idea for your family.

We need to remind ourselves what the causes of our nationhood were.  We need to read and think about what it was like then, what is like now and where it will be in the future if things continue.

If you don’t have one, get one. 

You might also want to have a dictionary handy to look up words like "usurp" and "tyranny."

  1. Sadly, your suggestion for a dictionary is probably a good idea.

    1. The kids at school are confused when I pull one off the shelf and read a definition to them. They are so used to making up their own definitions that they don't even know how ignorant they are.

      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.
