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 2014-214: DEFCON: Appearances

What does DEFCON look like?  It generally looks like America except for the male/female ratio.  That is changing as more hackers grow up, get married and bring their wives.  I talked to a lady who was at DEFCON for the first time.  Her children are now grown up enough for her to get away and join us. 

Years ago it had a massive delegation of pale, somewhat autistic teen agers with few social skills.  They have now grown up, some are getting a little sun and some are getting more social but social graces are still not their strong suit.

Many try to find ways to stand out.  Kilts are worn.  I walked behind a guy who had a plastic Viking horned helmet.  Hair is colored with whatever will stand out.  Mohawks and mullets are everywhere.

And increasingly the boring middle is being seen.
