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 2020-190: The Mystery of Blue

My wife and I are having a disagreement about New York City.  She has this strange idea that the people of New York have had their eyes opened to the incompetence of their mayor and that the next time they can vote they will clean house.

I say, no way.  New York is full of two extremes.  On the bottom of the economic level you have those who believe they deserve everything and that the government will get it for them.  They are locked into the welfare system and life is good for them.  Why work when you can get all the free stuff?

At the other end you have the Progressives*.  They tend to be the rich who feel that when it all comes tumbling down they will be left on top of the heap telling the less worthy how to live their lives.  They really believe that they are better than anyone else.  They read the fantasy in the New York Times and wonder why we don’t believe a thing it says.  It must be right because it expresses their view of the world.

Both have something tattooed on the inside of their eyelids:  Orange Man Bad.

There may be a few who will change the way they vote but it won’t be enough to make a difference.  Why they stay is a mystery to me.
