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 2024-063: Wildflower Watch: Chaos

It is wrong.  Just wrong.

I have been in Texas now for about seven years.  During that time I have been watching the yearly parade of wildflowers in Hill Country and trying to make sense of it.  I felt like I was making progress.  Now all is in chaos.

Some wildflowers are pretty but are so similar to others that they are impossible to tell apart with ordinary human wisdom.  Those come in yellow and white.  Some stand out and I found them coming in order.  The first were the blue bonnets.  Toward the end were the Indian blankets and Mexican hat.  Today as I walked I saw blue bonnets, Indian paint brush, Mexican hat and a red globe that I will have to look up again.  Not only were they on the same walk but were in the same yards.

This is not the way it is supposed to be.  It is how it is.

I will have to deal with it.
