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 2013-261: Healthy Insights: Traditional Cure for Hoarseness

One of the things that you would not expect to find while reading the journals of John Wesley is medical advice.  But he has a cure for hoarseness.  Read it as his advice, not mine.
“However, pounded garlick (sic), applied to the soles of my feet, took it away before morning.”  page 46
Wesley was famous for preaching in the open fields of England in the late 1700's.  He would preach in the rain.  He would preach several times a day starting at 5:00 A.M.  If anyone would know about going hoarse it was John Wesley. 

Try garlic.

    1. And I wonder if it really works, but not enough to try it.

      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.
