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 2018-223: Election 2018: The Blue Wave Oversleeps

I first heard the news on the radio that woke me up this morning and later found it on My San Antonio.  A “political newcomer” named Pete Flores won a special election for the Texas state senate.  The loser was a known name in both state and federal government.  Here is the corker:  This is the first time the seat has ever gone to a Republican and the records go back 139 years.  This is a blue wave I can learn to like.

The radio also reported that Cruz now had a nine point lead in the polls.  Of course I don’t know which polls and how reliable they were but this certainly goes against the narrative we are hearing in the Main Stream Media (DNC Talking Points Media).

Feel free to read the article and gloat.  Since I don’t listen to the left wing news sources I don’t know if they are reporting this.

  1. I have absolutely no use for Cruz, but he's STILL better than a democrat.

    1. I find some comfort in the fact that I once felt that way about Trump.

      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.
