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 2011-26, New Terms: Bagging

This is actually not a new term but many of you that don’t get out much may not have heard it.  You might know it as knocking, ragging, chopping, roasting or some other term, depending on how old you are.  It is a popular form of humor.

Bagging is different from insulting although the words may be the same.  Bagging is an insulting comment made to a friend as a form of humor.  Both people know this and it is harmless.  An insult is intended to harm.  For instance, “You are stupid,” could be an insult, assuming you aren’t.  If you are it is just a statement of fact.  A bag would be, “Did your brain miss the bus this morning?”

Bagging tends to be more common among males.  That is because most women don’t have much of a sense of humor.

When you hear it, relax.  It is a way of saying “I care.”
