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 2023-278: Cure for Poverty

On the way to Canyon Lake there is a billboard that says something to the effect of ending poverty forever and it has a picture of a young man looking into your eyes with a wistful look.  I am assuming that the answer they have is an expensive government program with lots of well paid administrators.  

I have another solution, one that has stood the test of time.  My answer to that heart wrenching appeal is not a program but “Get a job”.  There is a simplistic solution for people trying to be successful in life.  It has three steps with some variation depending on who is proclaiming it:  1)  Don’t get arrested, 2)  Graduate from high school, 3)  Don’t have any children until after you are married.

I doubt if anyone will share that with him.
