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 2019-254: Calling Trump

What was Donald Trump’s original name?  Did he change it? 

I ask this because he seems to be able to trump just about any hand that is thrown at him.  Some card games have a color that is called “trump”.  It can change depending on the rules and who gets to decide what it is.  Playing trump at the right time was a move that would take out supposedly stronger cards.  As an example, if someone plays the king of hearts and clubs is trump, a two of clubs will take the hand.

Donald Trump seems to have picked the name because he has that ability.  It is too much to just be coincidence.

  1. Maybe he's just leaned to live up to the name.

    1. I think we have seen growth in the man although I keep seing revelations of his earlier benevolence.

      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.
