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 2020-277: On the Street: America Is Latin for Diverse

I am on the road.  It is interesting to see America in the midst of the health panic and political crisis.  It is still America but I wonder if it will be for long.

A road trip is a good way to remember how and why I love this place so much.  America is big and it is full of variety.  It took us a day to drive half way across Texas and a little ways into Louisiana.  The next day we were in three states.  The next day we hit four.  Texas is a big place with a lot of variety.  While just in Texas we went from the semi-arid areas around San Antonio and to the swamps in the east.  

America is huge and people who get out of town realize that.  One of the things I noticed about the students I taught was that they never left the metropolitan area of Southern California except for a quick run to Las Vegas or a trip home to Mexico.  The Progressives* take advantage of this limited living to sell things like overpopulation and deforestation.  People who live in the densely populated areas of the country think we are crowded.  Even the ones who have driven over the vast empty spaces on the way to Vegas seem to have been on Facebook the entire way and didn’t notice the lack of people.

Relax folks.  We will not run out of room and we will not run out of trees.  The funny thing about trees is that they keep growing back.

What a wonderful country, or at least it used to be.  That could all change if Biden manages to steal this election.

  1. What will be will be. We're doomed sooner or later as a nation anyway.

    1. We are all going to die someday, too. That doesn't mean I will encourage people to drink bleach.

      Grace and peace
