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 2012-222, Firsts: Being a Hunk

It was a weird sensation.  I was on an elevator in Las Vegas.  When I boarded I had nodded and smiled at two elderly ladies already on board.  Courtesy is nice.  As I was waiting for the elevator to finish it's descent I noticed one of the ladies elbow her friend and nod in my direction.  Now, they may have been impressed by my hat or my choice of wardrobe, but I think I was being checked out.  This has never happened to me before, at least that I have noticed.

So it is now official.  Another first, I am now a hunk because I have been leered at.  We will play down the location, an elevator in a second class gambling casino in Las Vegas.  We will overlook that obvious age of the ladies.  Who knows if they could even see across the elevator.  The fact remains:  I was ogled. 

My wife complains that men get better looking with age while women go down hill.

  1. Congratulations, hasn't happened to me yet.(not so I'd noticed).

    1. I'm as sure it is just because you have not watched carefully, or it could be you are spending your time in trout streams alone or watching the sun rise accompanied only by your animal friends. Try the elevators at a cheap hotel. Like much in life, context, context, context.

      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.
