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 2023-227: Twenty Years Later

Two decades ago we experienced a moment of infamy.  Devout Muslims struck at the Great Satan and left a pile of rubble and thousands dead.  The nation stopped and stared.  

Two decades ago we experienced a moment of unity.  The nation came together.  Heroes emerged and went into the rubble looking for survivors.  Political party loyalty was set aside as the entire nation tried to deal with what had happened.  To channel Dickens, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,...”

Two decades ago we saw George Bush rise above himself at ground zero and rally a nation in shock.  If only he had followed with more of that we might be a different people today.

Today we are divided again.  I don’t go along with the people who proclaim we must do away with partisan politics.  Partisan politics is a sign of a free people.  The problem is that the elites that have taken over the country are trying to make us united by coercion.  They are doing to the Constitution what the airplanes did to the twin towers.  The difference is that no one claimed the towers survived.  Today many see no problem with the destruction of the rule of law and due process.

We are still under attack.  We must pull together around the ideas that made America a city on a hill and a beacon to the world.  Keep talking.  Be courteous but do not back down.  Work to beat back the forces of evil.  The airplanes took down a few building and killed a few thousand people.  The Progressives* are working to enslave an entire nation.

And never forget, not only the forces that hated America twenty years ago, but the ones that hate America today.
