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 2015-61: On the Street: The Look of Hope

Have you noticed how many people are looking to the left for their hope?

The people I am talking about are the ones at the bus stops around the country.  I noticed this today as I was driving to work.  A man stood out in the predawn cold, leaning out over the curb, looking to his left, his face full of hope.  For him to look to the left was for me to look behind.  I found that symbolic.  There was no bus in sight.  I looked ahead.  He continued looking to the left.

Public transportation has its place, I guess.  If I am ever desperate or looking for a way to waste a lot of time, I will consider it.  Last year when my wife was in the hospital and my daughter was in town, I thought about taking the bus across Los Angeles so that I could be the one to drive home.  At the mention of my idea the entire family rose up in arms.  They didn’t want me getting mugged.

I prefer to set my own schedule and pick my own route.  It is part of the American psyche, or it was.  The Progressives of the Nanny State want to put us all in public transportation so the roads will be clear for their limousines. 

Remember, in a socialist state only the elites live in comfort.

And I hope your bus was not cancelled.
