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 24, Why Isn’t Hair Contagious?

I accused a student of giving me her cough.  Then it occurred to me, she has a full head of hair; I would be classified as bald;  Why isn’t hair contagious?

Have you ever had those days when you wonder why God did things the way He did?  In my more arrogant days I wonder if I could have designed things better.  Like, mosquitoes.  What is their purpose in the great scheme of things?  Do we really need disease carrying blood suckers in every pool of standing water?  That seems a silly question is you look at the books kids are reading today.  We have invented our own blood suckers.

But then I remember how I can’t even get a simple recipe right.  I always leave something out or cook it too long or have the temperature too high.  Some times I walk across the room and can’t remember why.  How in the world would I design a universe?  It may be that before the Fall mosquitoes were given more than one note and they would sing people to sleep at night.  Maybe they would land on you and instead of punching a hole, they would scratch you where you itched.  It’s hard to tell.

Maybe if hair were contagious it would grow on your nose.
