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 2013-14: Firsts: Bluetooth

When I purchased a new radio for my new-used car I bought more than I needed.  It is like getting a new software program for your new computer.  It has a lot of bells and whistles that you see no point in.  Such was the case with the Bluetooth capability of this new technological marvel.  I said I would never use it.

I did not count on my son spending time in my car when he was home for Christmas.  The smart phone that he and his sister bought me was also Bluetooth compatible.  Well, some oil and water refuses not to be mixed.  Before I knew it we were deep into punching buttons and listening in hope.  We eventually figured it out.  Even if I don’t care about Bluetooth it was a good father/son bonding experience.

If I cared about talking on the phone it would be really cool.  You can be driving down the road, listening to a pod cast from your I-Pod and suddenly the radio tells you about a call coming in.  You press the dial and it answers.  A microphone above the steering wheel picks up your voice and the caller comes through the stereo speakers. 


Two problems which are not really problems because of the third problem.  First, you need to have the phone with you and have the Bluetooth turned on.  Second, you actually need to let people know what your phone number is.  The third problem is that I don’t like to talk on the phone.

Eventually my wife will find out about this and start using it.  It will be handy for her because she can call me and I will answer.  It will be handy for me because I won’t need to pull over to the side of the road to listen.

The future awaits.
