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 2017-040: Consider the Source

It is a sad statement on our world when the off-the-top-of-the-head blasts of social media are considered more accurate and believable than the products of the professional “journalists”.  Instead of going to a newspaper and expecting an in depth article explaining an issue we have millions turning to twitter with its 140 character comments.  The real problem is that there are probably more accurate facts in the tweet than in the front page journalism.

The fact that it is sad does not make it any less true.  You heard it here on a form of social media.

  1. I tend to believe many of the bloggers I read regularly. Can't say the same for mainstream media, which is probably why I only check them out to see what they are lying about this week.

    1. It sounds like you are already considering the source.

      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.
