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 2012-197, Links: Hope from Another Source

While I am on the subject of hope for diabetics let me share something I came across this morning.  It is at a blog titled “The White Man” and the post is “Outliving a ‘Death Sentence’.”  If you have just been diagnosed or are living in fear of the future, give it a read.

  1. He has some thought provoking posts at times, Pumice; I think you'll enjoy reading them.

  2. It has been a time, but I think you first directed me to him. Thanks again for the links you give.

    Grace and peace.

  3. White Man here, back-linked from my blog. I'm fascinated with records, and thought I already knew the longest Diabetes survivor, a woman who's had it since 1948. I asked her recently how she's survived so long, and she (a registered nurse) said it was because she always took care of herself. She did get married and even gave birth to a son in 1965 (probably one of the first born to a survived juvenile diabetic). She didn't dare risk having another, so adopted her second son--who, ironically, also ended up getting juvenile diabetes. He didn't take care of himself, and now has two artificial legs as a result.
    Thought this extra detail would be of interest here.

    1. The key for success in many health issues seems to be taking care of ourselves, aka being responsible. I am amazed at how many people just want a pill for everything.

      Thanks for taking time to comment. I almost missed what you had to say but noticed an odd number of comments in an old post.

      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.
