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 2015-427: Election 2016: Winning Planks, Daylight Savings Time

There are a lot of concerns that need to brought up and considered in the coming elections.  From city council to President we need to be thoughtful and prayerful.  Most of the important issues will be ignored because the public has a short attention span stiffled by awesome ignorance and the media plays to those weaknesses.  So I suggest a plank for the election that is not exactly world changing.  It might, however, change your world.

I would suggest the we propose to do away with daylight savings time. 

I have heard all kinds of explanations about why we do it.  They are somewhere between weak and insipid.  If they did away with it most of us would be healthier because we would not need to readjust our internal clocks twice a year.  My guess is that somewhere in December someone would say, “Did we forget to turn the clocks back?” 

Or maybe they would never notice.

It would be worth a try.
