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 2012-201, On the Street: New Concepts for a New Generation

Recently I was waiting in the car as my wife ran into a store for a “quick” purchase.  This was one of those rare moments when I did not bring a book so I was reading anything in sight.  Today that included a tastefully done kiosk close to the car.  It was labeled as an “Oops, clean-up station, a convenience for pets on the go.”  I assume a pun was intended.  It had plastic bags available and a place to put them.  There are benefits to shopping in an affluent area.

Do you remember seeing “Curb Your Dog” signs?  We have moved that to a new level.  What a country.

  1. Gasp! You mean they didn't specifically mention composting it and "recycling" it as fertilizer?

  2. Maybe it was in the small print. I didn't get close enough to read that. I didn't want to walk on the ground close to the pole.

    Grace and peace.

  3. I am from the country and when I moved to the city many eons ago I saw the sign "no standing" - took me awhile to figure that one out.

    1. When you wrote it I had to stop and think a minute, but I get your point. I didn't understand what they meant by "curb your dog" until I visited New York.

      Live and learn.

      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.
