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 2018-096: It’s Everywhere

There are times when I despair for the future of my country and I understand how the Progressives (Democrats, socialists, communists, leftists, Rinos, elites) are gaining momentum in constricting our liberties and destroying the American way of life. 

What can you do to maintain the republic if people refuse to pay attention.  Maybe I expect too much.  Let me give you an example.  I was having a conversation with a neighbor and I mentioned Maxine Waters.  I got a blank look.  How do you explain to someone who Maxine Waters is?  Do I know only because I am from California?  Is she some kind of obscure minor politician?  I could only wish.

When you talk with someone who is successful, articulate and a seemingly active member of the community and they don’t know the name of one of the vocal fools of the left, how can you expect to make any progress on the great issues of the day?  How can a blank slate make wise decisions?  Recently I read an article about the ignorance of millennials regarding the Jewish Holocaust.  I am not sure where I read it but the Kansas City Star has an article about it.

When I taught middle school I got used to my eighth graders being totally ignorant.  I find it harder to deal with in regard to educated adults.  I guess if your major interaction is with social media filtered by people like Zuckerberg, it is to be expected.

If you know who Maxine Waters is, count yourself among the minority.

  1. I've always felt that it won't be the far left that will drive the nails in this nation's coffin, but the "near" left and the mindless middle.

    1. Rome committed suicide, it was not murdered.

      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.
