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 2016-259: On the Street: The Past Returns

Three of my ex-students bounced through my life this week. 

One is living his dream.  He said he is back in Mexico and on a pro soccer team.  He isn’t a starter yet but he is still young.  The first hurdle is crossed and life is good.  He also understands that he needs to prepare in case there are physical problems and he can’t continue to pay.  It was good to hear he was doing well.

Another is still dreaming.  She wants a career in music.  She tells me she is a singer, plays the saxophone and writes music.   The problem is that she didn’t understand the problem with changing keys in the middle of the national anthem.  That told me that she still doesn’t understand what it will take to make it.  The good news is that she is going to pursue a degree in business, just in case.  So she has a future but isn’t there yet.

The third one has grown up and begun to build a future.  He hailed me when I was shopping in a local grocery store and we talked awhile.  He is in line to take over for the manager during vacation.  He is working and starting the long climb.  He is not in college now but understands that he will eventually need the piece of paper to keep climbing.

All in all it was a decent week.  Some of them will wake up and smell the roses.

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.
