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 2015-63: Dynamic Duo

My mind goes back to the president recently visiting Saudi Arabia.  If I may paraphrase, for the first time in my life I am proud of our current first lady.

The sight of Michelle Obama standing behind her kowtowing husband with her head held high and no scarf on it, warmed my heart.  Take that, ISIS.

Islam does not really require women to be totally covered like some Muslim cultures go postal about but they are expected to have their heads covered.  It is a mark of submission.  Michelle Obama knew this and refused to comply.  She stood the two steps back.  I assume she was courteous and polite.  But when it came to the mark of submission, she stared them in the eye and refused to bend.  I picture her doing this while her husband is bowing like a peasant to the Saudi royalty.

So let us give credit where credit is do.  Good job, Mrs. Obama.

But we do need to talk about this school lunch thing.
