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 2016-287: On the Street: Mission Statements

As I was parking I noticed a nutrition store sign:  “We made it our mission to help you reach your goal”.  Two smiling models were featured on the poster with bodies that require more than a few pills or supplements.  I am insulted and rightfully so.  The only way that statement makes any sense is if my goal is for them to make a lot of money. 

We don’t understand the concept of mission any more.  We are forced to come up with mission statements that are so long and complex that if anyone bothered to read them they would just scratch their heads and say, “Huh?”  If a store doesn’t realize that part of their mission is to make a profit then they must be getting some kind of federal subsidy which I am paying for out of my taxes.

Think as you read or listen to advertisements.  Feel the insult, not just the burn.

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.
