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 2023-062: Tax Dollars at Work: Libraries

Libraries are underused resources.  It always amazes me how many people ignore them.  Library cards are free if you live within a certain zone and some will even issues free cards to anyone with ID.  I currently have 5 cards.  The biggest library system in our area would charge me $200 a year for a card but with the schizophrenia of government you can get a coupon from any library you are part of that you can take to get a limited card for free.  So far I have found more than enough to read in the free sources.

You are paying for them in your taxes so you might as well make use of them.  I will grant that the librarians, being generally woke, do not buy a lot that I think is worth reading but enough sneak through the cracks to keep me busy.

One of the libraries I use has an interesting search function.  After I make a search it allows me to search multiple libraries in the area.  That saves a lot of time.  There are other avenues that I have not tried yet.  You can request books and sometimes they will purchase them.  You can also use the interlibrary loan system that will bring you books from other libraries.  

Turn off your electronics.  Check out a book.  Read.
