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 2016-199: Headlines: Pop Culture

Who is Kim and why do I care that she went to the dentist?

The headline reads,
“Kim’s emergency dash to fix her pearly whites!”
It comes complete with an exclamation point and a picture of a mouth.  The headline was only overshadowed by one screaming “Deranged” about the kid who just gunned down 18 people in Munich.  He got a bigger picture too, which I am sure made Kim mad.

Do you wonder how Bill Clinton was elected twice?  Do you wonder why Obama was reelected?  Have you noticed the choices we have for president this year?  It is because a larger portion of the population knows who Kim is than recognize the name Bader Ginsburg.

How is that democracy rooted in public education working for you?
