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 2019-201: Change Happens

It is funny how our perceptions of people change.

At first I was not sure I could vote for Donald Trump.  Then it came to doing it while holding my nose.  Then I was glad I did.  Now I believe he is the man of the hour.  I was wrong.  I admit it.

There are a group of people who used to be foundational in the conservative world.  I think of Bill Kristol, Rich Lowry and Peggy Noonan.   There was a time when they had something to say and fit into the world of traditional values and a belief in truth.  Now they are just Never-Trumper hacks.  We need to understand that it is not just the left that offers Fake News.  Consider the Drudge Report, Fox News and National Review.   

Actually it could be that what is changing is not my perception but the people.  Either way we need to always make sure our thinking caps are on and our memories are working.

  1. The longer some people are in power, the more corrupt they become.

    1. What amazes me is they still try to bill themselves as conservatives and think we have not noticed. It is like guys our age wearing the gold chains and medallions with our shirts open to our belly button.

      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.
