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 2017-078: Headlines: Love in Action

You may have missed this one from a local Twin Cities newspaper.  I doubt if it made it to the nightly news but I will never know since I don’t watch it.

It seems that the son of the Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine was arrested for violent acts in attacking peaceful pro-Trump supporters.  Not only was he showing the love from the left toward the right he evidently resisted arrest and refused to comply.

It is unusual that this made any media mention.  What is not unusual is that the violent thugs seem to have been released with no consequences.  Maybe that will change but if I never post again it will not because I passed out from holding my breath it will be because I had a heart attack when I heard charges had been filed.

As a hate filled right winger I must point out that the actions of a child are not necessarily a reflection on the values and parenting style of the biological father.  That is only fait.  It is still true that the nut does not fall far from the tree.  Also, weeds seem to spread faster than oaks.

  1. You're getting quite philosophical there, Pumice! ;-)

    1. I will try to make up for it in my next post.

      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.
