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 2014-137: New Terms: Selfie

It is a constant challenge to keep up with the development of the Popular Language.  Words come and go.  Meanings are created and nuances established.  I am still trying to figure out what my eighth graders mean by “ratchet” but at least I now know what a “selfie” is.  Who taught me?  The president of the United States.  I had never heard of a selfie until he demonstrated it at a state funeral.  Classy, right?

I didn’t even know that such a thing existed and there he was, demonstrating it for the entire world.  Now I see the term and the action everywhere.  Everyone wants to be like the president.

If you are out of the loop, a selfie is the action of taking your own picture with your cell phone.  The current generation of phones has the ability to not only act like a traditional camera but take pictures from the front or back.  You can see yourself on the screen so that you know what will be in the picture.

So get a smart phone if you don’t have one yet.  Start documenting your life.  Post it on the internet.  Future generations are waiting.
