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 2014-167: Smarter Than a Button

I have figured out the problem.  My wife thinks that the bottons are as smart as I am.

For the longest time I thought it was the opposite, that I was as dumb as the buttons.  Today as I was trying to figure out an electronic device she had been poking I realized that she thought the buttons would do what she wanted even if she pushed the wrong one.  She thought it would be like telling me to bring her an orange and I would bring her a banana because she can’t eat oranges and all we have are bananas. 

Buttons don’t work that way.  If you get on the elevator and press floor 5 instead of 6 it will not take you to six.  A voice won’t ask you, “Did you really mean 5?”  An all knowing computer won’t override your choice and quietly take you to the right floor.  The day may come when the door key you carry will make it automatic but until then, accuracy matters.

Husbands do work that way, at least they do if they plan on staying married.  Remember gentlemen, they need us.  Today it was the motel A/C.  At home it is the digital TV.  Everywhere it is computers.  We don’t need to discuss maps.

Relax.  You are needed.
