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 2016-64: Tax Dollars at Work: They Only Want to Keep Us Safe

Yesterday I had three men visit my room.  Two of them had clipboards.  They must have felt important.   They were checking the room for safety hazzards.  I am sure they will find some.  After all they need jobs and they want to keep us safe.

Each man is being paid to walk around schools with clipboards.  They will then file a report of things that need to be changed.  Then they will come back to see if we have complied.

I have no problem with safety.  I have a problem with priorities and politically motivated jobs.  We don’t have a librarian any more.  We have not had new text books in history for ten years.  Our desks are falling apart one at a time.  The list could go on.  We don’t have money to deal with what we need but we have money to pay three men to walk around and look for boxes piled too high or electric extension cords that are too long. 

We also are one custodian short.  Guess who the third man was:  Our head custodian.  He had work to do but he was escorting these men around.  I guess their clipboards did not come equipped with GPS.

I can’t wait to find out what I have to move or change.

  1. It seems like the desks falling apart would be a safety hazard.

    1. You would think so, wouldn't you? I am still waiting for one of these government people who care to notice that I have 40 students in a room build for 25, that you can hardly walk down the aisles and no one has checked the fire extinguisher.

      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.
