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 2016-81: Headlines: The President Shows His Moves

I have been too busy to follow this as a news story.  All I know is the cartoons I see and the mocking I hear.  Evidently the POTUS went south and did the tango.  It is a free country, but he wasn’t in this country.  He is entitled to dance the tango if he wants but he needs to come to grips with the understanding that he is representing the United States of America not doing cameo appearances to advertise MTV.

In a way I can understand.  I do the same type of thing at school.  I put on moves like the students.  I wiggle my head when I talk.  I walk like my pants are about to fall off.  I gesture and bob.  I look like a fool.  I know it.  I am not the next Fred Astaire or Michael Jackson.  That is the idea.  It is a part of humor.  It is self-deprecation for a laugh.  It helps me relate to the students who are too young to have a life.

The world is not watching.  If it was I would show some dignity.  I know when I look like a fool.

That makes me one up on the president.
