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 2014-54: Headlines: Fiction in Life

Are you following the growing chaos in Europe.  The Soviet Union, excuse me, Russia, is rattling its sabers and getting ready to pull part of its empire back into the fold.  This is a great time for Putin to reach out and touch someone since we have such a weak president and a hopeless secretary of state.

What is interesting is that everything that is happening is described in a new novel by the late Tom Clancy.  We see the staged violence.  We see the Russians getting ready.  We see a repeat of what happened in Georgia.

If you want to know what could be happening in 2014 read Command Authority which was published in 2013.

And be afraid.  Be very afraid.
