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 2014-247: New Terms: LIV

They are everywhere.  The country is being run by Low Information Voters, LIV.

I have a young math teacher on my team.  I say young.  She was student at the school when I started teaching there.  I enjoy working with her.  She seems to have her head screwed on straight and has some standards.  She surprised me last year when she mentioned she had not read a book in years.  Any book.  Nada.

In a discussion this week she mentioned that she had been asked a question about the governor and had to confess that she did not even now who the governor of California was.  This is a college graduate who is teaching young people.  She is one of the better ones and she doesn’t read or know the governor of her state.

And she has one vote, just like me.

There are times when I wonder if our republic will survive.  There are times when I wonder if it should.

  1. In a "free" society, it seems totally immoral to me NOT to stay reasonably informed.

    1. I guess that is part of the difference between liberty and freedom.

      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.
