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 2016-65: Radio Rejection

I am experimenting with a new radio program in our area called the Armstrong and Getty Show.  I start off listening and when the commercials hit I will switch to my I-pod for an Alister Begg sermon.  I am finding that I switch back to the radio less each day.  I am reminded of why I don’t like live radio. 

First are the commercial breaks.  Recently I kept track.  At one point they went through 7-8 minutes of commercials, 5 minutes of telling me what was coming up and back to commercials again.  I realize that they are a business and they are out to make a profit.  I salute free enterprise and wish them piles of money.  The other side of free enterprise is that I am free to take my ears somewhere else if I don’t like the product.  So I go to the podcasts I have downloaded.

Second are the teasers.  They tell you about something they are going to talk about “next”.  They go to a commercial break and say, “when we come back”.  When they come back they don’t seem to get to it.  Eventually they deal with it and often it turns out to be nothing near what they said it would be.  I hate being manipulated.

    1. I guess so. I gave up on TV long ago but I keep finding a way to make my driving time productive. Cussing out the other drivers doesn't seem to be the righteous way to spend my morning.

      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.
