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 2015-470: Christmas Fear

Panera is living in fear.

I am sitting in the restaurant at breakfast time a few days before Christmas and the first song I hear is Roger Miller singing “King of the Road”.  I enjoy the song but it doesn’t do much for my Christmas spirit.  The songs cycled through.  Not even a secular, “Here Comes Santa Claus” or “Jingle Bell Rock”.  The music is very sanitary.

They are probably afraid of a lawsuit.  They are worried that some demented ACLU supporter will take them to court for violating their need for a safe space.

Will I change restaurants?  No.  It is probably the same down the street.  They are not the only ones living in fear.  It is just a sign of the times.

  1. Despite having deep reservations about the holiday, the attack on it disgusts me, for we know it's not the DAY that offends people, but the Lord.

    1. Tolerance seems to only be extended to ideas people, and groups that don't work to destroy true Christianity.

      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.
