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 2014-7: New Terms: PD

On Monday I was required to attend what is called Professional Development by the education crowd.  This year they had a new name for it, PD.  They may have used it before but I wasn’t listening.  It is new to me.  It is new to you.  If you hear someone talking about PD think of a group of public employees sitting around drinking coffee, collaborating, eating bagels because donuts are so old school, sharing out, writing on newsprint stuck to the wall, taking a lunch break and planning the future of your children.  All of this is done with tax dollars that you paid to the federal government.

There is an expression that I am hearing repeatedly.  I heard it at a meeting several months ago and thought it was the confused rambling of a school district administrator.  It seems to be the going concept for Common Core Curriculum (CCC).  Only educators would come up with a saying as silly as “we are building the airplane as we learn to fly it.”  I don’t know about you but I would not fly on an airline that had that as a slogan.

The future of your children in in the hands of these people.

  1. I think that's akin to passing the bill so we can learn what's in it.

    1. Good shot. That similarity went totally under my radar.

      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.
