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 2017-224: What Others Want in a House

As I am trapped in the hotel room my wife is watching one of those “look at the houses other people are buying” programs.  It is impressive the wide range of properties that exist across the country and how much location fits into the listing price.  It is also impressive to note the different priorities and values that people have.  Some are looking for what will work best for the family.  It is shocking how many are totally into self gratification.

The house that got my attention was listed at $750,000.  I had seen others like it for $250,000.  Location, location, location.  After I got over gagging at the price I started listening as they evaluated the house.

The prospective buyers found a lot of negatives.  Two stood out to me.  It didn’t have a room for her shoes.  It didn’t have a garage for his exotic cars.

The big plus was that it had a game room for him.  What mystified me was that the “game room” was a regular room with a pool table in the center.

It is no wonder that the Muslims of the world think we are a decadent society.

  1. Agreed. I have to cringe when I hear some folks say that they "only" have 2.5 million to spare for their vacation home. And people on the streets go hungry.

    1. Recently a couple were looking at an island in that price range and considering it a fixer-upper. I don't know whether to laugh or cry for them and the people on the street who are "hungry".

      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.
