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 2012-257, Ode to Old: The Organ Recital

One of the accouterments of old age is the Organ Recital.  When you get with people who are past a certain point in life you always seem to hear about every little issue going on in their body.  They tell you about each ache and pain.  They tell you about their medications and how they are reacting to them.  They give you the prognosis for their survival until the next day.

You know you are getting old when you can match them story for story.  A person a church tells me how their shoulder aches, I understand and share my story.  Diabetes?  I can talk about it as long as you want.  Can’t sleep?  Bathroom stops?  Bathroom goes? 

For those of us who are doing the recital I would recommend that you lighten up a little.  There are a million things to talk about that are of more interest to those who don’t understand.  Finding other things to talk about might get our minds off our issues, too.

For listeners, be patient.  Don’t point out that we have given the same report five times today or that we had a totally different story yesterday. 

Now that I have your attention, did I tell you about...

homo unius libri


  1. May I never start telling strangers about my "BM's!"

    1. Or if you do, that you be so far gone that you don't remember it.

      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.
