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 2015-83: Headlines: Adult Pre-School

This has to be the ultimate educational statement.

I saw the headline on Drudge and had to check it out.  I was hoping that it would be a serious effort by dropouts to get a start on their GED.  Alas, no such luck.

It seems that an ambitious entrepreneur has decided to offer day care for adults.  This is not the kind you might be thinking of.  This is not a place where you can take people my age so someone will watch them and they won’t wander off with the shirt buttoned crooked or their hair uncombed.  This is a place for gainfully employed adults to go and act like children. 

My fear is that this will become a requirement in educating teachers.  It reminds me when I took a class on teaching children to read and the Ph.D. that taught the class took two sessions to read us Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Maybe it is already a part of teacher education.

Oh, well.  More power to them, but don’t reserve a spot for me.

  1. Huh. A lot of adults already act like children. Might be a good thing to confine them to a room together.

    1. I think if is called a faculty meeting.

      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.
