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 2020-057: Time to Panic?

I woke up this morning and checked the Johns Hopkins site tracking the Chinavirus. 

First let me give you the news as it would come from the Media,

Deaths Double in Texas!!! 

100% Increase in One Day!!! 

Governor Mobilizes National Guard!!!

Now let me give you the facts.  Texas went from one death to two.  I think he called out the guard before even the first was reported.

Another headline I saw said something about American deaths have reached 100.  What the headline didn’t point out was more than half of those were in Washington state and most of those were in one nursing home.  Do the math.  That leaves the rest of the states with less than one each.

I went to the local “major” newspaper and found three other deaths mentioned.  One from a bar shooting, one from a car accident and a guy running around waving a machete who was shot by the police.  At least they don’t have to worry about the virus.

If we can keep the government from messing it up we will live through this. 

And watch out for those unicorns.

    1. That is my theory and I am still waiting to be proven wrong.

      Grace and peace
