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 2016-183: Headlines: To Coup or Not to Coup

I woke up this morning to headlines of a coup attempt in Turkey.  I am seeing a very mixed bag of headlines and reports.  In spite of the claims that the coup has failed I see indications that the media either don’t know what is happening or are not telling us.

    There is a claim that all social media has been cut off.
    There is a claim that all news media has been taken over by the government.

With that in mind we can only wait and try to wade through all that we are reading. 

I don’t know enough to have a dog in this fight.  One indicator that the coup might be a good thing is the response of our own President Barak Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry.  They both claim they support the elected government.  Since they both have a record of selling our friends down the river and supporting our enemies that makes me think that the coup might be a good thing for us and the world.
