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 2019-253: Trumping Kanye

I was recently killing some time at the local library.  I was looking through the magazines and noticed one that I used to read, National Review.  I can’t remember why I stopped but I did.  It has been years since I have opened a copy.  Since it is now in the ranks of Never Trumpers I don’t feel a real need to subscribe but I notice the cover featured an article about Kanye West.  I decided to read it.

It was a waste of time.  Since West seems to be getting along with Trump the hatred was transferred and there was nothing good to say about either of them.  The look-down-the-nose attitude was almost humorous.  The writer was trying to sound open minded and honest but he could not resist all the little digs.  What it boiled down to was Orange Man Bad so Kanye West Bad Too.  Or maybe it was Kanye West Orange, too.

It will be years before I bother looking at National Review again and since I don’t have many left it may never happen.

  1. It's hard to find responsible journalism on ANY subject anymore, especially politics.

    1. Sounds like an oxymoron to me.

      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.
