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 2012-172, Try the Back Door

Summer is my time to get to know the TSA up close and personal.  I spend a fair amount of time in airports.  Each trip means a trek through the screening process.  I am refusing to go through the new radiation dispensers so I live in suspense waiting to find out if I can walk through the old way or receive cheap thrills the new way.

My son introduced me to the marvelous efficiency of the screening process.  I was getting ready to get in line when he said, “Down stairs there is another entrance with short lines and no new scanners.”  Huh?  Sounds like a win-win to me, but can it be true?

Actually, yes.  We went down a level.  There was no line.  There were no radiation dispensers.  I walked up, showed my ID, emptied my pockets, took off my shoes and belt and walked through the non-golden arches.  All that was left was putting myself back together. 

If my geek son who can’t remember where he left his keys can figure this out, what about the terrorists?

Do you feel more secure?
