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 2012-93, Healthy Insights: Newest Snake Oil

Think of all the everyday parts of our diet that have been painted as evil and later, not.  Think of eggs, salt, coffee, and chocolate.  Think of all the medications that have been touted as the answer to all your health problems.  The latest to come across my path is, wait for it, Vitamin D.

At my last meeting with the doctor treating my diabetes the only issue that was out of line was my vitamin D.  It was low enough that I was supposed to be comatose or some such thing.  Anyway, he is putting me on a massive dose to try to bring me up to what the current gurus are saying is normal.  I will go with it for a time and see what happens.

In doing a little research I found that vitamin D seems to be the latest miracle drug.  In reading over the material it seems that vitamin D could be the cure from everything from psoriasis to depression. 

The most obvious treatment would be to get more sun.  The sun produces vitamin D in our bodies.  The problem is that we are afraid of skin cancer.  The answer might be to find a happy medium.

So step right up and get your vitamin D.  Guaranteed to cure what ails you.

  1. Happy medium? GASP! Where the money to be made in that?

  2. Maybe we could start a product line, "Happy Medium Vitamins," or come up with a Hhappy Medium Gas. I claim the copyrights on these ideas.

    Grace and peace.
