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 2020-235: Remember Drudge?

I miss Drudge.  Can I say that without being laughed off the internet?  I remember the days when one of my first stops was the Drudge Report.  You could count on the headline being a statement of what was happening in the world.  You could glance down the list of links and take your pick of what you thought was most urgent to know.  Once you learned a few things, like “big science breakthroughs” were all from English newspapers and were mainly about hoped for break throughs, you could have a productive morning.

Then the segue began.  I am not sure which came first.  I began to notice that a lot of the headlines in the links did not reflect what the story was about.  I also noticed an increase in what became Trump bashing.  I started hovering over the link to see where the news came from.  An increasing number were from left wing rags that were not worth the click.  Eventually I weaned myself and started looking elsewhere.

I miss Drudge, not enough to visit the site again, but I still miss what he used to be.  I miss Drudge, not for what the site became but for what it was.  I also miss the westerns that used to be on TV, chips that were not low sodium, 99 cent Whoppers, cars without seat belts and cheap gas.

Life moves on.  We must move with it.
