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 2014-273: Duty Calls

I am voting today because I am a responsible citizen, not because I think it will make any difference.

You see, I live in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.  We have Governor “Moonbeam” Brown as our leader.  I do not have one elected official representing me that I voted for.  None.  Even the opposition is questionable.  The man we have running against Governor Moonbeam refused to respond to the questions that the NRA sent him to learn his position on the second amendment.  He is also a Rino on other issues.  He might have a chance but that still would not give me anyone I can trust in government.  In addition, we have a host of initiatives to vote on that will increase the deficit and lower the quality of life.  I expect to lose on those too.

I am still going to vote.  It is a duty.  It is a responsibility.  It gives me the right to complain.

I can’t wait until I can retire and leave this state.  Where do I go when my country drinks the Kalifornia Kool-Aide?

  1. I'm sure that you know that Illinois is NOT a satisfactory haven for working people, retired people, homeless people, honest folks, criminals, etc. My daughter is quite happy 200-yards north of the Illinois state line. What a difference a few steps makes.

    Hang in there; it will get worse and may never get better, but your efforts are much appreciated.

    1. Just came from your sight. My fear is that it will get worse no matter who wins the election, but I am in for the long haul.

      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.
