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 2014-211: On the Street: Liberal Conversation

Low information voters (LIV) are everywhere. 

Today I started the day in a hospital waiting room and was forced to listen to a conversation.  The man being quoted was a typical liberal.  He was Jewish but did not keep kosher or feel that Israel was anything special.  He voted for Obama.  He thought Obamacare would be just fine.  What made it all clear to me was when he was asked if he know who Sean Hannity was.  He answered, “No.”

I didn’t know that you could go that far into the cave.

I have never listened to Jon Stewart.  I have never listened to Rachel Maddow.  I could make a long list of left wing, talking heads I have never listened to, but I know who they are.  Some I would even recognize.  How can people be so ignorant that they do not know someone like Sean Hannity?

I don’t ask them to listen, just pay attention to something outside your sushi restaurant.
