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 2017-178: Pumicisms: Q & A

One of the strategies of education is called Inquiry.  It simply means asking questions and getting students to ask questions that they are willing to research.  The students can really get into it because they know it gives them a chance to get the class off track.

What teacher has not had their hopes awakened by a student raising a hand and saying, “I have a question.”  One I get often is “What size shoe do you wear?”  Another is “When is this class over?”  When we are in the middle of an important issue the question is usually, “Can I go to the bathroom?”

I don’t get excited when they tell me they have a question.  I simply tell them, “I have an answer.”

That has become one of my standard replies.  Sometimes I have to remind them that “I don’t know” is an answer.

  1. Kids have been entertained for so long that they have utterly no curiosity.

    1. What used to be called copying is now called creativity.

      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.
