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 2013-325: Headlines: Silly Rabbit, I-pads Are For Games

A couple of weeks ago the radio news had a piece on the schools of Los Angeles and a new technology program.  Students were given an I-pad to take home.  It had security on it which was supposed to limit them to only school work.  It only took a week for them to get around the experts’ blocks and set them up for recreational play.

One of the fantasies that modern educators believe but will never admit is that they are smarter than the students.  In reality most educators feel the students are stupid.  They might not even admit it to themselves but the actions and policies scream it.  The kids are not stupid, just lazy.  When they want something enough to chase it they can be quite creative and clever.

The program has been suspended.  The score is Students 1, Educators 0.  The kids know the score even if the adults don’t.

  1. All too often, the most foolish people are at the TOP of the organization.

    1. That is the Peter Principle. The Dilbert Principle goes even further. It says that people are promoted to the level at which they can do the most harm.

      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.
