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 2014-20: Flosser Thoughts: Shaving Glasses

I knew I needed a shave but I didn’t know how bad it was.

Have you ever seen the stereotype of an old man, shuffling down the street, hair sticking out everywhere:  Head, ears and nose.  If he shaved it seem that he missed a lot of spots.  I had an insight into that this morning in front of the mirror.  He probably can’t see well enough to know what he looks like.

I have a pair of old reading glasses.  I have been using them for the computer but they are beginning to lose the range.  I asked myself where they might be more useful and came up with the bathroom mirror.  It is a little further away than the computer screen and I noticed the other day that I was leaning way forward and using the reading part of my bifocals to shave.  It was getting awkward.  I tried the old glasses and everything came into focus.

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle.

I saw hairs and wrinkles that I had lost contact with.  Instead of needing a shave I could suddenly see that I NEEDED a shave. 

If you are in that demographic, give it a try.  Usually there is no one around to laugh at you.  If you could see better they might not laugh at you so much on the street.  If you can still see, file it away or pass it on.

  1. Whatever works is my thought on the matter.

    1. I am sure there is some fancy Latin phrase for that but I don't know it.

      Grace and peace.
