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 2013-359: On the Street: Blue Lights and Red Lights

Don’t tell me that writing tickets won’t slow down crazy drivers.

It happened again.  I was reminded of how if we would simply enforce the laws and rules it would make a dramatic difference.  You see it everywhere and ignore it. 

Traffic was flowing well.  Suddenly the freeway came to a halt and began to creep.  What stopped everyone?  Was a car stalled?  Was there an accident?  Were young people running across the freeway in protest of the Florida shooting?  No.  All we had was one motorcycle cop sitting on the side of the road with his blue lights showing in the darkness.  He had not pulled anyone over.  He wasn’t using a radar gun.  He was just sitting there.  He was probably trying to figure out where to go to get coffee and donuts. 

As soon as we got past him traffic picked up again.  The flow returned.  Don’t tell me enforcing the speed limit would not slow people down.  If two blue lights can stop American drivers then just think what a few red lights would do.
