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 2017-136: On the Street: Empty Heads and Warm Hearts

I had an interesting conversation with a fellow educator recently.  We were talking about many things and I began hearing snowflakes falling.  At one point as I was making a point I noticed the same look in the eyes that I get in class.  I stopped and asked, “Do you know who George Soros is?”  The response was a blank stare.

Do you wonder why our students come out so ignorant and open to the nonsense of global warming, tax the rich, down with coal and transgender rights?  Ask yourself, “Can someone who does not know how to tie their shoes teach a child to tie their shoes?”

If you don’t know the answer to that question or you answer, “Yes”, congratulations.  You have passed the first test in being screened to teach in our public schools.

Teachers are caring, concerned, motivated and too often ignorant.  I guess that is what makes them such loyal Democrats.

    1. That response I am going to need to remember. I would attribute it to you but they might think you are a ballet dancer or some such thing.

      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.
