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 2016-104: Educational Incubators

We tell students to be on time and yet every teacher on my floor is late to class, in the middle of the day, on a regular basis.  Two of them are often still coming into the building when the students are supposed to be in class already.  You wonder why young people laugh at the law.

The students were told at a school-wide assembly that phones and I-pods would not be tolerated.  They were to be turned off and out of sight.  Come visit our school and see if you can find a student who is not on their phone between  classes and even during class.  The hall is blocked in front of my room by a covey of little chicks doing whatever little chicks find to do on cell phones.  I have to step over them to get to my door.

At the same assembly students were told that hoods would not be tolerated.  If you were wearing a hood it could be assumed that you were not a student at our school.  I don’t know how often I have had students ask me if they were students at this school. 

I could go on, but you get the idea.  When the snowflakes are rioting and demanding, when the Michael Brown’s of the world are assaulting police officers, when an aunt complains that her nephew was shot while breaking into a home when all he wanted was money for school, when life is what you see every day...remember it started at school with a lot of help from home.

  1. Have you ever thought of taking up sky-diving to get your mind off your job?

    1. What if I think about going to work the next day right after I jump? I might be tempted to not pull the cord.

      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.
