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 2021-339: On the Road: Again

I am on the road again.  The grandchildren and Christmas are calling.  Last Tuesday my wife informed me that it was 3:25 A.M., yes that A.M., and she could not sleep any more.  We were on the road by 4:15.  We made about 750 miles.  It was a long day.

It was not as beautiful as the trip before Thanksgiving.  The colors had done what colors do and faded into shades of gray and green.  It is still a spectacular drive.  What a big, beautiful and bold country we live in.  The sense of freedom that comes from getting in a car and driving long distances without border checks and required ID is something that I think few liberals ever experience.  They need to get out more.  The vast tracts of almost empty countryside with obviously thriving forests and fields would disrupt their sense of overpopulation and fear of the destruction of our natural resources.  Maybe they know that and stay in their gated communities for that reason.  It makes it easier to tell people what is good for them when you are sheltered from reality.

I digress.

We took a different route this time.  Instead of heading north through Mississippi and Alabama we went east along the coast to the Florida Panhandle before we headed north.  I was really impressed by Mobile.  The city skyline was unique and the vistas presented of the bay and ocean were almost breathtaking.  I say almost because I am a hard sell.  After an overnight in the Pensacola area we headed north through the secondary roads of Georgia to Savannah.  We saw a lot of small towns we would like to go back to and roam what the tofu class would call “old town” that were still functioning.  We talked to a lot of great people and saw a multitude of small businesses and factories.  America is still alive and well when you get away from the Democrat run fest-pools.  

Signs are everywhere telling us masks are required.  For every sign there is a crowd of citizens who are ignoring them.  It was refreshing.  I almost felt like I was in the middle of a revolution.  It wasn’t until we got to Virginia that we began to see large numbers of people wearing muzzles, even when they were not required.  Virginians need a vocabulary lesson.  Recommended does not mean the same as required.  They also need to be reminded of the difference between citizen and subject.

I am delighting in my grandchildren.  It is nice being around my daughter and her husband but that pales compared to the little ones.  My granddaughter informed me that she did not put the balls on the Christmas tree but she did help hang the ornaments.  When asked if she was excited about her grandparents coming she shared that it would be wonderful.  

Merry Christmas.  Since we are now installed in our condo I may get around to writing and posting.  If I don’t do much I am sure that all of us will still enjoy the blessings of the Incarnation.
