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 2016-182: On the Street: No Thanks

Maybe it is time to start sitting on the back porch. 

I used to like the idea of sitting on the front porch watching people go by.  I had not done it much in real life.  My wife’s grandfather had one of those houses on a busy street that had a huge covered porch out front.  I had a few chances on vacation to sit out front and watch the world go by.  I enjoyed it at the time.

Not any more.  With all the violence and vulgarity the front porch has become a place to avoid.  There are not very many people walking by in my back yard, at least not yet, but it is a lot safer.  At my sons house it doesn’t matter if you pick front or back all you see are trees.  I don’t have much of the way in a front porch anyway.
