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 2014-172: Headlines: Target Takes a Stand, Politely

As I was cruising the net I came across references to Target and its statement on guns in the store.  The article I Goggled was from the Wall Street Journal.

It doesn’t make any difference in my personal life.  I stopped going to Target several years ago when they banned the Salvation Army kettles from their entryways during Christmas.  It isn’t a religious commitment.  If they are the only game in town I will enter, but buy as little as possible.  If there is a choice I take it.

The article points out that they stopped selling guns years ago.  Now they are asking, politely, for people not to bring guns into the store. 

You can respond as you please.  I responded long ago.  I continue to respond.  If they allow the Salvation Army back I will take another look at their view of the Second Amendment.  They have already taken a stand against the First.

  1. I don't shop there either, but I have to drive an hour to get there anyway, so it isn't difficult.

    1. Some stands we take are easier than others. I am against the use of alcohol as a beverage. It helps that I can't stand the taste.

      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.
