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 2014-86: Healthy Insights: Ruts and Rails

I am in a rut and I can live with it.

I pulled in the parking lot, got out of the car and slowly walked into Panera.  It was another glorious morning.  I savored those steps from door to door.  When I walked inside I noticed that my order was already on the counter.  I made a joke about being in a rut.  I get the same thing every day.  It works for me.

The problem with ruts is when they throw you off course or don’t go where you want them to go.  There is no problem with being in a rut if it saves you time.  There is nothing wrong with ruts if they are worn be repeated right actions.

My breakfast rut doesn’t mean I am refusing variety.  I have tried many of the items on the menu.  I like them all.  On a given day I might bust out and have one again.  On a daily basis they do not meet my needs.  I need to control my diabetes.  A bagel and cream cheese would triple my calorie intake for the morning.  After experimentation and calculation I have established my rut.  That is my rut and I’m sticking to it.

Think about it as a railroad track.  It is expensive to establish.  It only goes one place.  But it is carefully laid out and engineered.  You can get where you want to get without spending all your energy trying to avoid pot holes.  Enjoy your breakfast sandwich with designer bread, egg, cheese, bacon, avocado and mayo.  I will enjoy my low blood sugar.

My rut is something I can live with.
