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 2018-013: Crazy Works for Me

We are just starting 2018 and Trump is already driving the left crazy.

He is opening up areas full of oil and allowing Americans to access their natural resources.

Black Americans are seeing the lowest unemployment since that statistic has been recorded.

North Korea is starting to talk.

Major corporations are passing the benefit of the tax cut on to employees.

And we are only half way through January.  Of course I imagine there will be setbacks.  Some will be real.  Many will be the lies of the Fake News industry. 

I remember when students used to ask me if I was crazy.  I told them that being crazy was one of the requirements for teaching middle school.  I said it was right on the application, “Are you crazy?”  You had to answer yes to get the job.  For you liberals out there I did say it, but I was only joking.

If Trump is crazy, maybe we can find a way to make it infectious.

  1. LOL - like Lincoln commenting on Grant's drinking, when he told the gossips that he'd like to know what it was in Grant's bottle, so he could give some to his other generals.

    1. Or in Trumps case take away the bottle all together and see if they can sober up.

      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.
