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 2022-037: Shoe Logic

Logic is slow to develop.  My granddaughter came and asked me if she had the shoe on the right foot.  In this case it wasn’t but that was easy to fix.  What made me laugh a bit was after she had that shoe on she brought me the other and asked if it was the right one for the other foot.  What seems a simple bit of logic for an adult is a mystery to a toddler.  Watching a child develop is one of the joys of life.

Watching adults either fail to progress or see them regress is not such a pleasure.  The blatant nonsense that we hear about the economy, global warming, stopping a virus, white people are bad and January 6 was a violent riot is bad enough.  What is worse is that so many people swallow it hook, line and sinker.

There are many points of blame from the parents to the choices of the person themselves.  Most of those points do not touch you or me.  If the shriveled intellects did not have the right to vote and often think the government owed them, it would not matter to me.  But they do.  

We need to continue to educate and communicate.  Accept the fact that you are surrounded by ignorance.  Ignorance hates information.  It is hard to think you deserve an EBT when you realize that your neighbor is paying for it out of his taxes.  They will never know it if we don’t tell them.  Again.  And again.  And ....

Use humor.  Be ready to back off if they get hostile, and they will.  But keep coming back.  If enough of us keep speaking up then maybe we can make an impression.
