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 2018-031: The Temperature of America

I am currently in Maryland.  When it brightened up enough for me to see the thermometer out on the back porch the needle was hovering between the 10 and the 20.  I checked my phone and was told it was 16̊ outside.  Time for another cup of coffee.

In a few days I will travel back to Texas and I believe it is forecast to be about 60̊ there.  That is bad enough but after a short stopover I will be flying to California where it is supposed to be 85̊.  What a country.

It amazes me that so many diverse populations and geographies have managed to hang together this long.  How can someone living in beach weather understand a life where you need to worry about your pipes freezing? 

The right managed to make it through eight years of Bill Clinton without imploding.  We endured eight years of Obama without taking to the streets.  My hope is that by the time Trump does his eight years the left will have gotten in touch with their inner-American or if they never had one fulfill there promise.  Canada would love to have them.

  1. LOL - That's not what my Canadian readers tell me. They already have too many of their own, including their president.

    1. We could make it a provision of NAFTA.

      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.
