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 2020-163: On the Street: A Non-Shopping Trip

In our part of Texas there is only one large grocery store chain, H-E-B.  They are kept honest by the Walmarts and Targets with full grocery sections and a few smaller stores.  All in all they do a good job.  They have refused to require masks to shop in their stores.  I wrote a letter to the manager thanking him for that freedom and, since I was going shopping anyway, decided to deliver it in person.

When I got to the store I noticed that since my last visit they had put up a sign requiring a mask.  I decided to pass my letter on anyway, walked through the door and handed it to an employee stationed there.  I asked if it was corporate policy.  He said, no, the county had passed something that required it.  I thanked him, told him I wrote the letter before the sign went up but told him to pass it on anyway.  I then turned around and left.

The county that is pretty much made up of San Antonio has been harassing citizens for months about masks.  They were only held at bay by the governor.  Now Judge Wolff, whom I wrote about before, has entered the fray, finding a way around the law so he could rule by fiat.  And then Governor Abbott went soft.  New Braunfels, where I did some shopping, passed a mandate last week.  I still had Guadalupe county.  That changed today.

What do I do now?  I am going to call a few of the smaller stores out in the country and find out if I have any options.  I came to Texas to get away from the California crazies.  It seems that stupid is spreading faster than Covid.
