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 2020-098: Silver Linings: Libraries

One of the benefits I am experiencing from the Chinavirus hysteria is the closing of the libraries.  The library is one of my big hang outs.  If allowed, I will go at least once a week.  When they closed down they had it set up so you could check out books on-line and pick them up curb side.  That has been cancelled also.  The website tells me that the employees are still working remotely and are available to answer my questions.  My only question would be why are they still getting paid when all the small businesses are being forced to go bankrupt.  Could it have anything to do with most librarians being Democrats?

But I digress.

The benefit of closing the libraries is that it is forcing me to look at all the books on my shelves that I have been intending to read someday.  Someday has arrived and I cannot put it off any longer.  So far I have finished two histories of World War II by Stephen Ambrose, Slouching toward Gomorrah by Robert Bork, a book on theology, and a book on Islam by Bernard Lewis.  To show the depths of desperation I am now working through some philosophy by David Hume.

I keep hoping the nonsense will cease and we can get back to not work.  If not, I still have several shelf feet of books to read.
