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 2020-252: On the Street: Ready When They Are

I have been doing some volunteer work at our county Republican headquarters.  In the process of getting donations for signs, T-shirts, masks, flags and whatever else they can come up with I get a chance to talk to some people of character.  Since I am by nature a recluse this is a change for me.  I can enjoy talking to people, it just is not necessary.

We had an old man of character come in a few days ago.  He was barely mobile.  First he tried to con me into giving him a hat.  Eventually he had his wife spring for it.  What was fun was that during the conversation the antisocial behavior of Antifa, which Joe Biden informed us is just an idea,  came up.  He said they better not mess with his car.  At that point he patted his pocket.  I assume that meant he was packing.  His point was that if they thought they could get away with their rioting in his neighborhood he was ready to debate the issue with them.

He could hardly get around.  He had two canes.  He had to leave his oxygen in the car.  He still wasn’t willing to be messed with.  

Welcome to Texas.
