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 2017-337: Watch Out for Falling Rock

I am assuming that this is a genuine report on Daily Time Waster.  One person was killed while rock climbing as a chunk of the mountain fell.  There are some really great pictures.  It is easy to overlook the loss of life.

My sympathy goes out to the families and injured.  Also of great concern is that I expect the caring people of the Nanny State to try to make rock climbing safe so that no one gets hurt.  Of course that will destroy the sport.  I have no interest in climbing rocks.  It isn’t just the danger.  I am too lazy.  But I think that part of the joy of life for some people is taking the challenge presented by risky endeavors.  Unlike drag racing on city streets, rock climbing does not generally threaten innocent bystanders. 

Let them take the risk.  They do not need your protection Sir Nanny.

  1. For me, that falls under the admonition "Tempt not the Lord they God." In fact, a LOT of things that I'm now chicken to do seem to fall under that category.

    1. I guess that is part of what wisdom involves.

      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.
