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 2021-038: Hang It

I hung my flag last week.  I don’t get to it every day, but it is something that expresses part of who I am.  Or at least it used to express it.  The Progressives* have succeeded in turning us into a Banana Republic.  Maybe we should substitute bananas for stars.  

I wonder if I will continue hanging the bananas and stripes.  Or maybe I can continue to hang it until January 20.  Or maybe hang it upside down.

I may go to the Lone Star flag.  

I was once proud to be from California.  I used to brag that I went back two generations as a native.  That has certainly changed.  I am now embarrassed by what California has become.  I know where the new regime in Washington wants to take us and when they do I remember the words that Ted Cruz quoted from his father.  It was something to the effect that they left Cuba to get away from Communism and if America falls there is no place else to run.

Why do immature brats want to destroy what they cannot have?

*(Liberals, educators, socialists, communists, crony capitalists, elites, Rinos, Democrats, leftists, Never Trumpers, Antifa, etc.  Another word for swamp dwellers)

  1. Too many generations of "hands off" child raising.

    1. I remember a guy saying how complacent our children were. My wife and I almost fell out of our chairs laughing. Even the kids thought it was funny. Complacent? Not hardly, just hounded into being civilized.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
