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 2012-90, The Cell Phone Plot

It became clear to me the other day.  I was walking toward my car and saw a poor deformed lady making her way across the parking lot.  My heart began to go out to her as she struggled with her deformity.  Then I realized she was talking on her cell phone, she was not a Quasimodo clone.

You have seen these people.  They have their shoulder hunched up and their head bent over with the phone sandwiched between as they talk with abandon.

I think it is part of a plot by the chiropractors of the world.  The position must do something to the alignment of the spine and cause a plethora of problems.  There are only two solutions:  See the chiropractor or dump the cell phone.  I prefer the second but I don’t see it happening.

Maybe we need a federal program to help people stand up straight.  Perhaps we could have a law making it illegal to take your hand off your cell phone when it is connected with a call.  Perhaps we could require cell phone users to wear a large helmet with a special adapter to hold the phone against their ear.  All of these steps would, of course, be for our own good. 

“I want to be from the government and I am here to help you.”

  1. Maybe you should get your chiropractic license and profit from all the foolishness!

  2. I must confess, that solution never occurred to me.

    Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
