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 2022-329: Can You Teach Calculus II?

I love the enthusiasm of new home schoolers.  They are committed to having their children grow up with values and strong minds.  They are willing to commit to the time and change in priorities.

But they are somewhat fragile and need all the encouragement they can get.

They need to be told they can do it.  I had a conversation with a young mother who is on the program and she was wondering if she could teach the child.  I had to laugh because she had a double bachelors in chemistry and math.  Those are the subjects people are afraid of.  I did a lot of laughing, in a supportive way of course.  The next guffaw was when she said she would not be able to teach Calculus II.

I have news for her, neither can the public school teacher.

If you know anything about what is going on in our public schools and many of our private schools then you realize that home school students may be the hope of the future.  If you know someone involved in the adventure, encourage them.
