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 2023-249: Today Is the Day

I was looking at the headlines on Real Clear Politics and saw one that stopped me for a second, “What We Can Learn From the Great and Flawed Columbus”.  I glanced through the article.  It seemed legit.  At the same time I thought the click bait stated the obvious:  Columbus had flaws.

I am not sure if you need a degree in literature or journalism to make such an observation.  We are all flawed.  Sometimes those who make the most impact are the most flawed.  

Columbus’ is not great because he discovered the new world.  He is great because he went against the common wisdom and sailed into the unknown.  Think of him as the original Star Trek, going where no man had gone before.  Someone was going to open up the western hemisphere for European exploration.  It just so happened that it was Christopher Columbus.

Happy Columbus Day
