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 2016-91: Calendar Coincidences

Who arranges these things?    Is there a secret committee of practical jokers that pick out things like National Artichoke Day and Secretary Day? 

April 1 is April Fools’ Day.  There is a movement to change it to Bernie Sanders Supporters Day but I don’t expect it to get much traction.  It is too late for this year and next year will be beyond the attention span of his followers.  If he wins they will forget they voted for him and curse the darkness he brings.

Then we have April 15, tax day.  This is not the day that we pay our taxes.  This is the day in which we have to file the paperwork for the taxes that we have already paid.  This is the day that we try to get some of our money back.  It would seem to me that the government should pay us interest on the money they have coerced from us.  Good luck with that.

Than we have May 1 which in Progressive lands is called May day.  This is when the Communists have their parades of military might and nuclear missiles.  It used to be when children would dance around the May pole to celebrate spring.  In truly pagan times you might find a few virgins sacrificed. 

We are in the middle of all that now.  Surely you can find something to celebrate about.

  1. I think they had to give up the virgin thing because they couldn't find any pagan virgins.

    1. And from what I hear it is hard to find them in churches.

      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.
