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 2014-141: Typo’s and Ignorance

It is funny how often I find typo’s when I re-read a post.

I try to avoid writing and posting quickly.  It is a sure formula for looking ignorant.  I know the difference between their, there and they’re.  The problem is, my fingers don’t.  When I get in a hurry my fingers do the thinking for me.  Then you have the problem of keyboards that don’t respond the way you think they should and leave letters out.  Writing and re-writing is a technique that I try to teach at school when we are doing research reports.  Most people are too lazy.

When I first started this blog journey I remember reading a post on Gorges’ Grouse about how he does it.  He talked about writing, setting the piece aside and looking at it again later.  I am sure that an English teacher somewhere told me the same thing, but Gorges words stuck with me.

It doesn’t matter how many times I have read things.  I often find mistakes that I totally missed.  Don’t blame Gorges or my English teacher.  Blame the computer keyboard gods.  I am sure that it isn’t my fault.

  1. LOL! Pumice, I no longer have the time to have the guru proof-read my pieces or let them them sit around for too long. That's probably why I sometimes find myself correcting them after they're posted!

    1. It was still good advice and shows up in your writing. I have a number of bits of Gorgesisms that are filled away in my head.

      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.
