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 2019-094: Election 2020: Time Management

I am wondering if I should spend time learning to pronounce Pete Buttigeig’s last name?  I only have so much time and so much energy as I get older and I am not sure he is going to last long enough to warrant the effort. 

Living in Texas has been a real challenge in pronunciation.  Some of the names I have needed to learn to keep people from laughing at me,

The city of Boerne, pronounced like Bernie, as in Sanders

The city of Gruene, pronounced green

Bexar county, is pronounced bear, like the animal

Since I plan on living here and people know these names I have needed to learn them.  Buttigeig I can pronounce any way and get the same blank stares as if I got it right.

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.
