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 2021-086: Belated Valentine’s Greetings

Did you get a chance to see the precious hearts that decorated the lawn at the White House after Mrs. Biden found a way to apply her Ed.D. (Doctor of Education, not Ph.D. and definitely not M.D.) to the needs of the nation.  As a former public school teacher I can say that the educators of America felt right at home.  It is the kind of thing they do with their bulletin boards.  It used to be you only saw it in elementary school but it is at all levels today.  The kids may not know how to read and write or calculate percentages but they know what red and pink hearts mean.

At last we know what Donald Trump and Melania could have done to warm up the snowflakes and mush heads of the popular media and academia.  I wonder why they never thought about it.  Now we know what Joe and Jill were planning in the basement during the presidential campaign.

When I was teaching middle school, my wife offered to come in and do my bulletin boards.  I politely declined the opportunity.  I don’t like feminine decorations in a room where I am trying to teach important issues like American history.  If I was really careful I could make one set of staples make it through the entire year.

So, happy day-after-Valentine’s Day everyone.  Ladies, next year tell you husband you want big hearts on the front lawn instead of dinner at Flemings and See’s Chocolate.
