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 2015-468: Immigrant Power

Foreigners buying up our businesses?  Immigrants undercutting our wages?  How Horrible?  No, how American.  The life blood of America has been individuals with dreams and drive coming and applying themselves.  They have been people willing to take risks and work hard.  These are qualities that have been replaced by entitlement mentality and a sense of victimhood. 

I remember years ago I had a job in graduate school.  I was cutting grass in a large development.  One time I jumped in a van and went down to the local convenience store with some guys I worked with.  In the store a man was vigorously stocking shelves.  Evidently he was the manager of the store.  One of my co-workers commented on how hard he worked.  It amazed him that the top dog was doing menial labor.  To him the guy should be sitting back and giving orders.  That is why he will be cutting grass the rest of his life. 

These new Americans have dreams and are putting them into motion.  Do they abide by all the rules and regulations?  Probably not, but neither do you.  Do they take advantage of every loop-hole and opportunity?  Yes.

Blessings on them.
