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 2015-253: Welcome Back 2015: Marking Our Progress

Education is moving forward.  We are having great success, or so we are told.  At our “Welcome Back” meeting for my district the Superintendent read from a list of major accomplishments for the previous year.  While they did have a bit of prestige, don’t get too impressed.  Several of our schools were recognized by different organizations for their excellence.  Note though that the awards were given by other educational institutions and the media not by the people who are hiring our graduates.

Then he shared two big successes for the last year.  They were so significant, I only remember one.  Evidently one of the great steps forward was having a very nice retirement dinner last year.  Sorry I missed it.  I am sure that they wish I had taken advantage of their golden handshake offer but it would not have even covered the additional insurance costs I would have incurred.

Maybe next year.  Or the next.  Meanwhile it is good to know that such wonderful things are happening in public education.  There is no word about whether our graduates are yet able to read their diplomas.

Stay tuned but don’t hold your breath.

    1. Since you can read this I assume you are above average. Let me make another guess: You learned to read before you went to school. Am I right?

      Grace and peace.

  2. Hey, a good dinner is nothing at which to turn up your nose!

    1. Of course you need to ask yourself what someone who thinks public education is great would call a good meal.

      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.
