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 2012-276, Firsts: Chewing My Cud

I am now joining the millions of Americans who do cow imitations.  I am beginning to chew gum.  I had tried it a few times as an appetite suppressant but didn’t see it rocking my boat.  There is no substitute for discipline and delayed gratification. 

Then I saw a poster about dental hygiene that went something like, “Brush, floss, rinse, chew.”  I read the fine print that said chewing sugarless gum could help in taking care of your teeth.  The logic made a bit of sense.  It can’t hurt.  I will ask my dentist next time I see her.

For now I chew my cud.

homo unius libri


  1. The kind with xylitol(sp?) is supposed to actually prevent cavities.

  2. I have seen a word that looks like that on labels or ads, so there might be something to it. Of course, I don't believe much of what I see on a label. Call me a pessimist, or just call me a realist.

    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.
