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 2014-48: OCD Economics

How can you tell if inflation is really happening?

It might be a good idea to start a file with a day’s worth of grocery ads on a certain day of the year.  Too many would be a sign of being OCD.  Once a year, say on your birthday, you could compare the prices and see how much things have increased over the past year.  When we are in the process we don’t always see it.  I know that it seems only a short time ago we were paying 99 cents for a gallon of gas but how long was it really?  I can’t even be sure what it was last week.

You can’t trust the government numbers.  They leave out key items which effect us average people the most but by leaving them out they can massage the message the way they want. 

Just a little something for you to do in your free time.

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.
