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 2017-090: Hoop Based Administration

School administrators that I work with have a philosophy:  If you throw enough hoops in front of people they will eventually get tired of jumping and go away.  Thus you will not need to do anything but have your secretary shuffle some paperwork.

This was set off by three girls sitting in the school office writing “statements”.  I have no idea what the issue was.  I did not know the girls.  Someone said, “You girls look like you are having too much fun writing those statements”.  Truer words have not been spoken.  The girls got out of class.  They got attention.  The school feels like they are “doing something”.  Nothing happens.  Everyone is happy.

Hoop based administration.  It is not coming to a school near you.  It has already arrived.  It is in charge.
