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 2016-156: You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet

One of the comments I have seen on several websites about the Orlando Massacre is that it is the worst attack in the U.S. since 911.  I have not been counting but I will take their word for it.

Something is implied in those statements:  Worse is yet to come. 

The surplus of gun free zones around the country is mind boggling.  Think of places where people congregate.  Schools and hospitals head the bill.  Since I work at a school I am aware of how vulnerable we are.  Many churches are gun free zones.  Pick a mall, any mall.  It doesn’t take much imagination to add to the list.

Add to that our open borders and immigration policies. 

Add to that a president who is either clueless or clued in.  Either reality is chilling.

We ain’t seen nothing yet.  The brightest light I see is that I am ready to go.  If they get me I go on to better things.  That won’t help you if you are left behind, but it is a comfort to me since I work in a target zone and fly several times a year.  There is also hope that there will be enough tragedy that the general population will wake up.

Until then...

  1. The doctor's office I work in posted signs last week stating that it is a gun free zone. I really hate that they're advertising it.

    1. It is ironic that hospital emergency rooms that treat the victims of this invitation to mayhem are also probably gun free zones. Maybe it is good for business.

      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.
