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 2023-219: Will We Ever Know

One reason conspiracy theories are so common is because they turn out to be accurate.  Another is that they are really fun.  It is a powerful combination.

My conspiracy theory about the Maui fire was that it was started by the indigenous Hawaiians as a way to deal with the pesky haoles who hung around in Lahaina.  We used to own a condo in Hawaii and made regular trips.  One year we spent six weeks immersed in the aloha spirit.  We spent enough time there and talked to the locals enough to realize that there was a growing animosity from the locals toward the mainlanders.  It was one of the reasons we sold and stopped going.  Lahaina was mainly a tourist trap.  It would represent everything that the locals hate.  So my theory was that they started it to clean out the pestilence.

The one I am hearing that is better than mine involves lowering the price of real estate.  I don’t bother with the articles but I do enjoy the click bait headlines.  One says that a month before the fire the developers got a law passed that allowed them to buy property cheap if it was destroyed by fire.  Another pointed out all the rich, powerful, and usually Democrat celebrities that are buying up large tracts of land on Maui.  (Play music from Twilight Zone here)

Personally I think that there is some kind of skulduggery behind the fire.  I am not sure if we will ever find out what the plan was or who planned it.  Meanwhile we will have fun in our imaginations.  

You might also want to file away the thought that if someone rich and famous ever wants to buy your home it could be a good idea to sell.
