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 2015-238: Elections 2016: The First Debate

I only got to see the first part of the Republican Presidential Debate on Thursday.  I found it entertaining and well done.  I am very impressed with the field this year.  Even the candidates that I hope come up short sounded solid on the issues that I heard addressed.  It was great to see them going after each other and maintain a good humor about it all.  They had the chance to speak up.

I also felt like the panel asking the questions did a good job of asking hard questions and trying to get the candidates to answer.  On the first part thumbs up.  On the second part, well, at least they tried.  How many times in a limited venue can you try to pin down a slippery politician?

It is going to be an interesting season.  I hope that the ones who have little chance will start dropping out and throwing their support behind someone else so that we have a clear choice between a moderate and a conservative when it gets to California.  The moderates who have been nominated in the past were all good men and would have made good presidents but they were not the best choices. 

Our country needs the best after we have had the worst.

Remember that elections matter.
