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 2016-83: Sammy Davis, Jr., a Famous Cuban

You are never too old to learn something new.  Again, the rest of the world has it wrong and my middle school has it right.  After all, we are educators, right?

The rest of the world believes that Sammy Davis, Jr. was born in Harlem.  At my middle school in a Black History Exhibit we saw him identified as Cuban.  I bet you never knew.  I doubt if he knew.  We probably had someone do some research that says he was kidnaped as an infant from Havana and dumped in Harlem.  Maybe we can find that on Wikipedia. 

I know that February is supposed to be Black History Month but somehow we could not it together so we are celebrating on March 25.  Welcome to modern edg-u-ma-ka-tion.

Remember, you heard it here first.  Watch out Breitbart.

  1. Yeah, and blacks designed and built the pyramids, too. I read that somewhere years ago in writings by someone "of color."

  2. There was a brief time when Egypt was conquered by Axum which was a black African Kingdom but the rest of the time that claim is just racist nonsense. They also claim that Cleopatra, of Greek extraction, was black.

    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.
