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 2013-172: Ode to Old: School Is Out

You will probably soon see an eruption of the yearly warning about children being out of school so you need to drive extra careful.  I think there is another warning I would like to see posted more frequently.  “Old man ahead.  Be extra alert.”  This is more important than the warning that children are ahead. 

We may not run out in the street like kids but we often forget to look before we shuffle.  You also need to understand that we don’t heal as fast as we used to.  A couple of years ago when I was approaching the official status of “Old Man” I bounced down the stairs at my daughter’s house.  I kicked the wall on the way down and broke my little toe.  That was just a brief, minor irritation.  The real problem was the jarring to my joints.  Although I was not seriously injured, and certainly not stopped, I was a walking mass of creaks and groans for over a year.  Gradually the pain receded. 

I healed, but I don’t want to repeat the experience.  I am trying to be extra alert, at least when I am alert.  So watch out for me, if you would.

  1. That settles it, no more "bouncing!"

    1. I know I don't bounce as high as I used to. I now go down those steps one at a time and sideways. Pain is a good teacher.

      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.
