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 2014-235: The Ayes of Texas Are Upon Us

Recently my wife opened the mail and came across a statement that our sewer charges were going to go up and threw it at me for consideration.  After looking at it I had to agree with her ability to read:  It said that sewer charges were going up.  Actually it said there would be hearings and they valued our input but I had the feeling our input at the hearings would be treated much like our input in the sewers.

Recently we were in Texas.  We were struck by the different attitudes.  I am sure that rates for things like water are going up in Texas also but that is only part of a long term plan to meet the need and keep progress in motion.  In Texas when they are short of water they do more than raise water rates.  Texans begin trying to find ways to more get water.  In California we do more also.  We talk.  We talk about cutting back, limiting our use, changing our life style.  In a word:  Diminish the quality of life.  What a difference.  California takes the liberal socialist mantra, Texas the free market quest for progress.  It is no wonder that people and businesses are moving to Texas.  It is no wonder that part of the liberal agenda is to bring Texas to its knees.  You have noticed that the Obama administration has orchestrated an indictment of the governor of Texas?

I also notice the hypocrisy of the left on this issue.  They don’t seem to be making a big deal about reducing what we put in the sewers.  They do want to reduce the amount of water used but I have not heard anything about limiting body waste.  I guess there is an acceptance that some things cannot be reduced.

  1. I'm not so sure. Liberals have a LOT more of that stuff in them than conservatives. Maybe they could talk about forming a committee to study WHY!

    1. I am assuming that we would not be allowed to be on those committees. It is also easy to tell a grocery bag from a garbage bag.

      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.
