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 2013-316: On the Street: No Help Wanted Sign Here

Saturday I went to a local place to get an alignment on my car.  I went to a local place because they are very helpful, even when you don’t want to buy anything.  The first thing I noticed was that there was little business.  The owner greeted me, took a quick look, asked a few questions and got the process started.  Because there was little business, we got to talking.

Eventually we got around to politics.  We were talking about government regulation and minimum wage.  He said something I wish that the politicians could hear and care about.  He said if it was not for government demands he could hire three more people.  When I was there on a Saturday he had three employees on the job.  He has to pay them even when business is slow.  I don’t know who else he has working.  Three more people could have jobs if not for extra taxes and the burden of paperwork. 

No wonder the economy is in the tank.
