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 2011-153, Whatever Happened to Dandruff?

I was taking a shower the other day and had what I call a “shower thought”:  What ever happened to dandruff.  Remember how it used to be a big thing.  We had the Dandruff Shampoo Wars between Enden and Head and Shoulders.  We were convinced that a few white specks on our black blazer would ruin our chances of marriage, family or career.  Happiness and success were riding on our shoulders.  Or not riding if you used the right shampoo.  It was serious.

Now the kids are concerned about being ashy.  I have kids who will stop in the middle of almost anything to take out a tube and smear some goop all over their body.  They are worried about being ashy.  I try to tell them I have never been refused service because I was ashy but it makes no difference.  They have their standards.

Or they have the standards of their peer group. 

Are we any better?  We seem to be more concerned about the phoney standards of our peers and the advertisers than the standards of God.

  1. I used to have dandruff as a kid and used Head & Shoulders religiously. Then, I got married, got poor, used the cheap stuff and the dandruff disappeared. It sorta makes you wonder.

  2. Maybe it actually worked as advertised. Or maybe marriage is the real cure.


    Grace and peace.

  3. I wonder how many of the old home remedies actually had their place.

    Thanks for the input.

    Grace and peace
