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 2023-126: New Terms: Woke?

I don’t read all the click bait so I am not sure what the official line is but I am hearing that people don’t know how to define “woke”.  Let me help.

In classical English “woke” means to stop being asleep.  My pre-redaction, dead tree fiber dictionary tells me it is the alternative past tense of “wake”.  I also notice that two pages back is “wing nut”.

In Proregressive English is means to be sedated to reality and is the present tense rather than the past.  It has the opposite meaning.

Being woke requires a lot of flexibility because the meanings of words and acceptable behavior are constantly changing, sometime daily.  This gives woke a timeless quality.

Woke means always looking over your shoulder to see what your minders want you to say or do.

As a general rule woke means that you can’t take care of yourself or provide for your own needs because that would require work, which may look similar to woke but has nothing in common.

The woke tend to be on the left of politics.  I don’t know if that is built into their DNA or if it is possible for someone on the right to be infected.
