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 2013-230: Tax Dollars at Work: Expanding the Smithsonian

As we were driving around Washington, D.C. looking for parking we notice that the Smithsonian was expanding.  They were building an entire new section.  It was going to be a museum of African American History and Culture.

Fascinating.  Since we already have a museum of American history I can only assume that whoever is behind this assumes that black people are not a part of American history.  Sounds a bit racist to me.  Is this the wave of the future?  Does this mean that in a few years we will also have a Museum of Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender History and Culture?

Stay tuned.

And this in a day and age of massive deficits and no budget.  For whom did you vote last election?  Happy with the results?

homo unius libri


  1. Your last paragraph was a waste; folks that voted for "THE ONE" don't read anything except comic books and sci-fi.

  2. And they probably don't pay taxes either.

    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.
