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 2024-078: Prisoners of the Green

As I sit out on the porch in the early morning, I am struck by how the elites of our country want to destroy our liberty by destroying our mobility.

I listen to the traffic and watch the headlights in the distance as people rush to work or whatever it is they have to do in the early morning.  Some may be going home from work.  Some may be out pursuing a special interest they have.  Most are probably going to work and getting ready to earn a living for the day.

Then there are the ones who leave from their homes on the hill and head off to whatever it is they have to do.  I think of the outings we have taken as a family that have involve driving for an hour.  If the elites have their way all of this will die.  If they have their way, we will be confined to the 15 minute cities and we will have to work within 15 walking-minutes of home.  We will have to shop within 15 walking-minutes from home.  We will have to go to church, if zoning allows a church, within 15 walking-minutes of home.  We will have our recreation confined to a walk and 15 minutes from home.  That is the plan of our betters along with bug burgers.

We might be free to take public transit if it’s offered.  We can always call a cab, maybe.  Look what they are doing to Uber.  All of this in the name of saving the planet and green energy.  It will be stifling.  You may have missed it but one of the slogans in California was “Brown is the new Green”.
