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 2018-239: Building a Legacy

Which came first the name or the slang?

I am referring, of course, to senator Jeff Flake and the way he has flaked on his responsibility to the Constitution, the country and the people of Arizona.  Actually I am not so concerned about the people of Arizona.  They seem to have a problem.  They are the same ones who brought us John McCain.

Often our slang and vocabulary comes from the name of a person associated with it.  Gerrymandering came from Elbridge Gerry.  Borking describes how judge Robert Bork was treated by the Democrats.  In some future generation people may think that Jeff Flake originated the slang.

Consider it his legacy.  As the Democrats would say, it is accurate even if the facts don’t back up the actuality.
