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 2021-352 (numbering correction): So Shoot Me

If you like memes check out Georges’ Grouse.  He does a daily gathering from various sites.  Better him than me.  One of the themes that comes up involves pictures of famous actors caught in real life.  What caught me today was John Wayne shaking hands with someone at a dinner.  As I looked at the picture I realized that I would not recognize many modern day actors without their makeup or costumes.  I don’t know if that is good or bad.  Does it say that they are great at their job or that there fame is a result of good PR?

I have been forced to watch a lot of TV as we traveled across the country.  My wife is into Hallmark movies.  My problem is that I can’t tell the actors apart.  To me it is not just the plots that are the same but it looks like the same people in each one.  I am so far out of it on pop culture that I am also starting to care.  It can be embarrassing being culturally illiterate.  The other day I heard someone talking about the Simpsons making a Christmas album.   I was not aware that Homer had a daughter named “Jessica” or that she had a sister.  It is a good thing that I kept listening rather than sharing my ignorance.

Actually I am quite happy about being ignorant in certain areas.
