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 2016-334: First Christmas Present

I am getting an early Christmas present.  It is a trip to the dentist. 

Why is that making me celebrate?  I was able to schedule it on a Monday.  On Mondays at our school the kids go home early and every second Monday we have a meeting planned and run by our fearless leaders.  If you are a woman or man who likes to share your feelings and have no discernment about the big picture these are safe spaces for educators.  If you think Common Core is a bunch of nonsense then these are times of cruel and unusual punishment.

It used to be that we could leave early on days like this and get in a dental appointment.  Now they get legalistic with us and threaten to take an entire half day of sick leave.  Okay.  I can live by the rules.  Now I take a day off, sleep in, go to the dentist and miss the meeting.

(For those of you who do not work for the government you may not even know what dental insurance and sick leave are.  I understand.)

Merry Christmas.

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.
