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 2020-069: On the Streets: Are Toilet Paper Lines Better Than Bread Lines?

I never thought the breadlines would form so quickly.  Okay.  So people are waiting for toilet paper instead of bread.  We have all seen pictures from the Great Depression, the Soviet Union and places like Venezuela where people are standing in lines waiting to get what will be made available.  We call them bread lines.  We shake our heads and wonder how people got there.  Then we go and line up like sheep outside the grocery store.  The only difference is we stand six feet apart.

I only came close to it once at Cosco.  Since I can pick when I shop I managed to have no wait but when I came out the line was formed again.  For the most part we are being managed without any rifle toting thugs.  We have smiling store employees.

And keep in mind, it is for our own good.

I don’t have an answer.  Maybe we could start by refusing to cash the checks that our overlords are planning on sending out.  I know I am not going to get violent.

Wash your hands and watch out for unicorns.  Don’t let them come closer than six feet.
