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 2014-58: Moonbeam Health Insurance

The health insurance tension continues.  We got a letter from Blue Shield yesterday telling us that our coverage would end on April 1.  At that date we are switching in some way but will still be covered by Blue Shield.  Because there is some difference in the way the coverage is set up it will be like we are being cancelled and reapplying.  They tell us we should get our new cards about ten days before the change over.  It should be no problem, right?  How many others have thought the same thing?

This is the point at which people seem to be losing their insurance.  For some reason they are denied coverage over the new plan.  Is our union moving us onto Obamacare without making it clear?  Are we now in one of his exchanges even though we don’t want to be?  Will we become another of the horror stories that we keep hearing about?

We will see.  There is no way to know.  I will be waiting to see if the other shoe drops or we end up barefoot.  Will we also be ground down by our benevolent government’s need to control?

I live in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia with Governor Moonbeam.  It sounds like the kool aide is now being drunk by much of the country. 

Maybe we should call Obama President Moonbeam.

  1. The fires of hell are surely being stoked even hotter.

    1. I am hoping that all this will work out and we will wonder what we were so worried about, like Y2K. I am referring to health insurance, not the fires of hell. I am not sure which will be worse, the flames or the company.

      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.
