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 2020-224: Out of Warrantee?

Is it time to sell Manhattan back to the Indians?  Would they want it?

You all heard the story in school.  The Dutch gave the Indians $24.00 worth of trade goods for the island.  Who knows if it is true or is in the same class as George Washington cutting down the cherry tree.  One version I heard was that the last laugh was on the Dutch because the Indians knew they didn’t have the right to sell it.

Maybe it is time to get a refund.  The way things are going in New York it would be good to sell before the value got below $24.  Maybe we could throw in a free trip to Las Vegas.
