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 2022-304: Immortal Quotes: The Most Famous Last Words

“You always have to have the last word.”

Have you ever had someone tell you that?  I find it an amusing statement.  Yesterday when I heard it I remained silent and listened.  After being told the fourth time that I had to have the last word, without making any comments in response, my mind drifted and I stopped counting.  Simple things amuse me but my simple mind has a hard time staying focused.

Generally such a statement is a tool of manipulation by people who want the last word and need to feel very righteous about it.

Drive them crazy.  Just smile and remain silent and start counting.  I would guess they will never get the irony.
