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 2013-183: The 50% Solution

How do you deal with women?  After 38 years of marriage I am still asking the question.  After 28 years of fatherhood I am asking it twice as much.

A recent example.

I have a small cooler I use to take lunch and snacks to work.  It gets dirty.  Dirt is a part of life.  The first time I decided it was time to clean it I was planning on putting it in the washing machine with cold water and accept the results.  When my wife found out my plan she went ballistic.  I can’t remember her reasoning now but she insisted on washing it by hand.  Okay.  Now it was clean.  Mission accomplished.  On with life.

Yesterday she decided it needed to be cleaned again and guess what.  She popped it in the washer.  ????

I have pretty much decided that when my wife asks my opinion I don’t give one.  At least that way I have a 50% chance of getting it done my way.

  1. From my experience, 50% is about right.

    1. I assume we are both optimists here.

      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.
