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 2014-170: Have You Read It Yet?

Today is a holiday.  One of the reasons we celebrate holidays is to remember, see our drift and adjust our course.

On Christmas my family reads through the sections of Matthew and Luke that tell of the birth of Jesus.  At Easter we review the accounts of the resurrection of Jesus.  Although our founding documents are not on the same level as the Bible they remind us of who we are as a people, where we came from and what our dream still is as a nation.

If you still have not read through the Declaration of Independence, do it.  You have all day.

I can only hope that the Supreme Court will remind themselves of who we are supposed to be.  I dream of a Congress that takes the time to read this.  The president?  I really think it is too late for him.  He already knows what the Declaration and the Constitution say.  He uses it the way I use the recommendations of the California Teachers’ Association at election time.  I read their recommendations and do the opposite.

Our coins say “Liberty”.  Too bad our leaders don’t.

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.
