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 2016-55: Tax Dollars at Work: No Skateboards Allowed

On my way to work I pass through our local downtown district.  I noticed that in their desire to keep us safe the Nanny State has been at work again.  We already spent tax dollars tearing out curbs and putting in wheel chair ramps.  Then we paid again as they went back and installed yellow bumps.  I guess these were for blind people in wheel chairs so they would know they were going out into the street.  Or maybe they were for sleeping wheel chair drivers to alert them to danger.  We have now found work for our idle cities workers by again updating the ramps.

I now notice spray painting that states very clearly “Bicycles and skate boards are not allowed”.  I am sure that people on wheels will look at that.  I know when I am on a bicycle I always stop and read signs printed on the ground.  It is good to know we have so much money to spare.  I expect the next update will expand the signs to announce that wheel chair ramps are gun free zones.  Or maybe they will label them “Car free zones”.

I wish our city would put up signs saying, “Fool Free Zone”.

  1. Then the mayor and city council would have to have their offices outside of town!

    1. I didn't know you were familiar with our city council. They must be more famous than I thought.

      Grace and peace.
