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 2015-250: On the Street: Do As I Say...

We are in the middle of a drought in California.  It is called living in a desert with a lack of future oriented leaders.  You know, a drought.  Signs are appearing everywhere pleading with us to conserve water, paid for with my tax money. 

So how does the government model this behavior for us?  Hypocritically.

I was outside at 3:30 AM.  Don’t ask.  It was legal and moral.  I noticed that the school across the street had its sprinklers going full blast, on a day we are not supposed to water.  I stood on my 3/4 dead lawn watching the public sphere spray water all over the place.  I guess they figured there would be few people watching at 3:30 AM and even fewer that would notice.  I guess they are right.

Forward to my school in another district.  As I walked into the inner quad I noticed that the turf was lush and green.  It was obviously being well watered.  As I entered the main building I could look through a breeze way to see the lawn the public could see.  It was full of brown and bare patches.  Clever.  Kind of like what goes on in the classroom but that is a rant for another day.

One thing I can say about the government is that they are consistent.  Hypocritical, but consistent.

  1. Consistency is a good thing; right? lol

    1. I am afraid it is all we will get.

      Grace and peace

  2. You said "Don't ask." but I must. Why the heck were you outside at 3 in the morning? Secondly, this year your class might just be an intellectual wasteland.


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.
