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 2022-204: Headlines: A Mother Missed

We were greeted yesterday morning by the announcement that Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s first wife, has died.  My condolences go out to the family.  It is a tribute to her, as well as him, that the children of that union have turned out so well.  A major ingredient in how I evaluate people is the way their children turn out.  I know nothing about her other than that and she becomes five stars because of it.  I felt that the gracious comments by her ex said a lot about her and about him.

It was interesting to note that she was married several times and the time with Donald Trump was far longer than any of the others.  I take that as saying something about him as a husband and the children as a good indication of him as a father.  All of this goes to say that he is a good man at heart.

Life moves on.  When someone famous dies it is a good time to stop and remember the unfamous people in our lives.  It is also a good time to examine how much time you give to those still alive.
