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 2012-292: Firsts: Small Works

I made an interesting discovery this week:  All smaller planes are not the same.  I have been forced to fly on small airliners a few times in the past.  Once was in Australia and we were tossed around so bad that one passenger had to be carried off on a stretcher.  The last time was in a cracker-box, up wing, prop job in the Eastern U.S.  I was not happy when my wife arranged a route for me that included a small jet.  I didn’t care if she got the ticket free, there was a reason.

When I got on it only had three seats across.  My seat was both an aisle seat and a window seat.  I could not stand up straight in the aisle.  I was not impressed.

But it worked out fine.  The seat was as good, or bad, as any I had experienced on a full sized jet.  The ride was my concern and it was smooth and steady.  At the end we went down stairs and walked across in the open to enter the terminal.  It was like living in the past, but like much of the past, it was not all that bad.

So if you are like me and leery of small jets, it is an unnecessary fear.

  1. That's a worry I'm unlikely to have, unless the government someday flies me to my "new home!"

  2. In that case they will probably be putting us in those big military transports that are designed to haul tanks and other large freight. You can pack more in with no amenities.

    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.
