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 2013-294: On the Street: The Right Perspective

I was waiting at a red light watching a cop trying to make a right turn, which is legal after a full stop.  His problem was a pedestrian crossing the street in front of him.  I noticed that the young man in question seemed to be moving very slow.  He was tall and appeared healthy, yet walked with incredible deliberation.  When he finally got across and the policeman went on his way I watched the kid.  When the cop was gone he kept strolling and broke out in a big smile.  If I had been in the place of the cop I would have been doing a slow burn, or a fast one, but since I was an observer I enjoyed the moment.  The cop was frustrated.  The kid was fulfilled.  I enjoyed the drama.

Perspective is important.

  1. I'm surprised the cop didn't think the kid was on drugs and stop and test him!

    1. He may have been thinking about it but he was probably late for his coffee.

      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.
