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 2017-029: Headlines: Awards

As I was reading about some of the protests against President Trump I wondered what they were complaining about.  I wasn’t reading about any of his actual actions.  I was reading about all of the fear mongering that is so popular.  I was reading how he was going to put women in jail who had abortions and how he was going to deport the parents of my students.  All nonsense but very loud nonsense.

It struck me that there was a similarity between Trump and Obama.  Each was being rewarded for things they had not done.  We have the Hitler Award to Trump for atrocities he has not committed.  We have the Nobel Peace Prize for Obama before he is even in office.  His big accomplishments were writing two autobiographies about a life that showed no accomplishments. 

Neither one has done anything to deserve the awards.  It is like me being awarded the Miss America crown.

      Grace and peace.


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.
