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 2011-225, On Lemons and Toast

I hate it when I don’t hear the toast pop up.  Have you had those moments?  You put the bread in and decide that you will spend your time at something more important than toaster gazing.  Then you get so wrapped up in what you are doing that you don’t hear that distinctive click that says, “Your toast is ready.”  In case you have not caught on, it just happened to me.

You have heard the question about “What do you do when life gives you lemons?”  Maybe we need a new one, “What do you do when you don’t hear the toaster?”  As this roars across the internet, going viral, remember that you heard it here first.

I would suggest the best thing to do is give the toaster the finger.  I don’t mean the middle one, raised in defiance.  I mean whichever one you use to push down the lever again.  Remember the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”  The guy that first said that had been making toast.  Have you ever noticed how one quote just leads to another?  That is a question for another day.

When your toaster gives you cold, hard bread, push again.  Sometimes that is all it takes.  When your computer won’t work properly, try again.  Sometimes the second time is the charm.  If all else fails, don’t call the Geek Squad, reboot.  And don’t forget to check to see if it is plugged in.  Life does not need to be complicated.

Depending on your personality you may need to put in fresh bread or decide to have yogurt instead.  The important thing is, don’t give up.  Somewhere in your future there is a perfect piece of toast.  Trust me on this.
