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 2017-208: Headlines: Can I Have a Real One?

The TV is on.  Fox at the moment.  I keep trying to ignore it.  The media seems to be bouncing between Trump Tweets and Christy on the beach.  I keep asking myself, “What is happening in Africa?  How is the Russian economy doing?  What are the actual details being considered on the Senate health care discussions?  What are the parallels between what is happening in Venezuela and what the Progressives have in store for the America?”

Do I care if Trump tweets?  Not really.  I enjoy watching the media and Trump haters go catatonic, but I really don’t care.  I am interested in the next Supreme Court nominee.  He did fine on the last one.  I am interested in how his attempts to cut back on regulations is making progress.  He is doing things I do want to hear about.

Do I like Christy?  No.  He is a moderate Republican who has a few good ideas but I can’t forget the big buddy moment with Obama.

Leave the infatuation with silly issues to CNN.  Since I can’t get away from the TV, Fox, you might at least give me something that keeps my brain from turning to Jello.

    1. I have tried headphones but then my wife feels like I am ignoring her.

      Grace and peace.

  2. Kind of sad about CNN. When we lived overseas 20 years ago, it was our go-to source of information.

    1. It makes you wonder how accurate they were even then.

      Grace and peace
