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 2023-240: Game Time

I am developing a new game.  I generally throw out advertisements that come in the mail.  I am not looking for a ranch in hill country and don’t need my house appraised.  I don’t need new windows and I already have a tree guy.  Today a piece of artwork came for some kind of financial service and I decided it was time to get started.

I wanted to know if they really wanted my business.  Remember how we used to hear that various minorities felt left out because they did not see themselves in the movies, TV programs or advertising.  I have decided that is a two way street so I looked at this mailer.  Do I see myself?

One side had mainly hands.  The one cheek showing was up for grabs about the affirmative actions boxes it checked.  The hands seemed to represent a full spectrum.  Are hands enough to make me feel warm and fuzzy inside, included and loved?

The other side made me feel like a lost child.  There was nothing that could be called male.  There were women and more hands.  One picture had a black woman and one that was a Latina.  All I can guess is that they don’t want my business.

Seems logical to me.
