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 2021-237: ZZ Minus One

I have seen on multiple sites that Dusty Hill has passed away.  Who is Dusty Hill you say?  That is what I would have said except the headline comes with a video clip of a group called ZZ TOP.  Who is ZZ TOP you say?  I am encouraged by the fact that you don’t know.  If you do know you might want to go back and take a class in music appreciation.  ZZ TOP is a group of guys that look like they worked for the Duck Commander except I think they were on the charts before anyone heard of Duck Dynasty.  I don’t know how you label their attempts at music but that is more my lack of interest than the lack of a title.

If you try to watch one of the video clips you will see what I mean.  They have the same long face hair that the Robinson clan sports.  I assume they were successful.  My lack of appreciation does not mean that the general population who can’t carry a tune did not like their music.  For their fans the death was a loss.  Since all humans have worth in the eyes of God, it was a loss for everyone.

It is too bad that Duck Dynasty didn’t hire them to open their program.

  1. Actually, the song "Every Girl Likes a Sharp Dressed Man", which opened the Duck Dynasty TV show, was a ZZ Top song.

    1. I guess that just goes to show how culturally illiterate I am. It also makes me worry about what you have been listening to.

      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.
