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 2022-099: Headlines: Where We Can Get the News

It was a meme.  It was supposed to be a joke.  It is the kind of thing that gives us the real news.

I was scrolling through the memes at Mostly Cajun and came across one that listed speakers at a May conference at the Vatican.  The topic was supposed to health and the soul.  Check out these names that the Vatican thinks have important things to say,

Chelsea Clinton
Anthony Fauci
Deepak Chopra (popular Hindu and New Age guru)
CEO’s of Moderna and Pfizer

I found myself wondering if this was some kind of Fake News from the right.  So I did an internet search and found that it was totally accurate according to the Catholic News Agency.

As for the themes, it had this to say,

“In his remarks at the start of the conference on May 6, Pontifical Council president Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi said that the conference was organized around three themes, which he described as three stars that light up the sky: the body, the soul, and the mind.”
I have a few friends who are devout Catholics.  In case you don’t know any you need to understand that people who are serious about their Catholic faith are as concerned about the leadership and direction of the Catholic church as patriotic Americans are about America.

The rumor is that Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin and Idi Amin were not available for a May conference.

Will this insanity never stop?
