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 2014-41: Link: Time to Get Ticked Off

It is Saturday morning and I am looking at my links.  It is a way to keep from working.  I found an interesting post at “Mostly Cajun” that draws an interesting parallel between what ticks do to a healthy dog and what human parasites do to our society.

Here is a sample,
“Ticks don’t care. all they want is a lifetime of free meals so they can produce more little ticks. ticks are rather short-sighted. they don’t know or care that they’re robbing the host, eventually weakening it and killing it. They just keep eating and producing more little ticks.”
Go read the rest if you like that.

  1. I suspect that little quote puts it in a nutshell quite well.

    1. It is amazing how much wisdom we could pull from the natural world around us it we would observe. I am not sure that people would think being called a tick is a complement though.

      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.
