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 2022-303: Plug in Your Memory

I still like Donald Trump and I think the reason is that I don’t pay much attention to him.  I never read his Tweets since I am not on Twitter.  I don’t listen to his speeches.  I don’t fixate on him or who he backs in the political process.

If I lived in a place where his endorsement would help clarify things then it might be different.  In my Texas location the only areas of real choice are in the primary elections and I am capable of making those decisions without any politicians help.  

I still like Donald Trump because underneath the ego is a man who loves America and wants it to be what it was created to be.  MAGA is not just a slogan; it is a testimony.

I still like Donald Trump because I am more interested in the results he produced than in someone getting their feelings hurt because he is not diplomatic unless he is involved in diplomacy.  Even there he did a great job.  How quickly we forget the peace that was breaking out in the Middle East under his leadership.

I like Donald Trump because I have a memory.  I remember the economy, the energy independence, the genuine support of Israel, etc.  Just look at anything that is falling apart and remember that under his mean tweet leadership things were much better.

I might do all of us a bit of good to go back and get our charge card receipts from 2019 and ask ourselves if Orange Man was really bad.
