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 2022-078: So Many Videos

I continue to explore You Tube.  I am currently about a forth of the way through Joe Rogan talking to Bill Maher.  I am not sure I am going to finish.  The topics they are covering are of no interest and their adolescent use of four letter words insults my vocabulary.  We will see.  I may watch the whole thing to see if it gets any better.

I arrived here because I watched a three hour conversation between Rogan and Jordan Peterson.  I found it interesting.  It took me probably a week to get through it but I kept coming back.  I am watching the one with Bill Maher to see if Rogan is worth pursuing.  It may be that when he is talking with someone who knows words with more than four letters that he comes out of his potty mouth mentality and actually discusses issues.  

I have listened to Simon Sinek, Eric Metaxas, and plan to look further for people who are willing to listen.  I am finding this useful for the time of day when my brain lacks acceleration.  It may come to the place where I become used to it and need to keep changing.

To paraphrase, so many videos, so few worth the time.
