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 2014-203: Ode to Old: Living in Glasses Houses

I am glad that I have worn glasses all my life.

I am not forced to hide my need for glasses.  I didn’t have a big issue when I switched to bifocals.

I watch other people as they are faced with age and limitations.  It can be an eighth grader at school or a mature professional.  They squint.  They get up close.  They have others read for them.  They fake it.  Anything but admit that they need corrective lenses.

Remember, if you are crippled, a crutch is a help not a shame.

So if you are one of those who can’t read the street signs or the board, get some glasses.  If you have them, get ‘em out and put ‘em on.

It doesn’t hurt, really, and you will be able to read what I have to say.
