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 2017-391: Headlines: Ukraine Channels Spain

The Daily Signal had an article in the side bar about the struggle between Ukraine and Russia.  It reminded me of the way in which the Communists and Fascists fought a proxy war in Spain before World War II broke out.

In case you missed it, World War II have an opening act in Spain as the Communists and the Fascists fought for control of the country.  It was brutal and bloody.  Recruits came from all over the world to fight for one side or the other.  Nations experimented with equipment and tactics.  In the end the Fascists won and Franco came to power.  He lasted for decades until his death in 1975. 

Is Ukraine a place where the forces of east and west are meeting to flex their muscles and beat their chests?  I know Russia is involved.  I don’t know how much we have contributed.
