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 2013-97: On the Street: Are You a Messy or a Messer?

As I went to refill my coffee yesterday morning I noticed another customer wiping down the counter.  I made some kind of joke about having secret wishes about being a maid or some such thing.  I accused him of being a neatnik.  He said he just didn’t like seeing a mess.  I told him I would not have even noticed it.  I am afraid I am a messy.

What kind of personality do you have?  Some people can’t stand anything out of place.  A piece of lint or a gum wrapper can cause high blood pressure.  I know teachers who go around the room constantly picking up little pieces of trash.  They don’t even think about it.  Their rooms are immaculate.  They make me look bad.

I am a messy.  I really don’t see a lot of the stuff that bother neatniks.  I have been known to step over small piles of debris and not even notice.  It almost needs to trip me to get my attention.  If I concentrate real hard I can notice and police and area but when I do that I forget to button my shirt or something worse. 

It isn’t that I trash a place.  I don’t.  I know what trash cans and shelves are for.  I am a messy, not a messer.  There is a real difference.  I will not mess up your world, I just don’t notice the mess in mine. 

Now when it comes to the mess of politics, that is a different matter.
