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 2023-143: On the Road: Highway of Hope

Yesterday I drove north through Texas into Oklahoma.  People are out and moving, at least in this part of the country.  Buc-ee’s, a Texas based maga-gas stop, was bustling.  Even the cops were out.

What encouraged me was a lack of a sense of desperation.  If we ever come to the states going their own way, I think Texas will be okay.  I saw lots of farm land being farmed and cows enjoying the rain soaked grass.  There was also a lot of land that seemed to be fallow.  I don’t know enough about farming to know if it was useful for food production or not but it was fenced and owned.  We may not be able to feed Austin if things go south, but then, I am not sure we would want to feed Austin.  A better plan would be to surround the city, load everyone in cattle trucks and ship them to California.

I think much of the country will go on as usual.  

I found that uplifting.
