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 2014-228: Healthy Insights: Stoma Saga, 7 of 7, Extra Credit

A few thoughts that occurred to me as I was thinking about this in the shower.

There is no need to feel guilty about the need for this operation.  We often wonder what we did wrong and why this is happening to us.  From my listening and reading my feeling is that the need to remove the colon has little to do with your life style.  I guess you might make it happen earlier or something but not enough to feel any guilt.  That is not a professional opinion based on rigorous scientific research but I think it is true.

The second thing you will find true is that the professionals don’t know as much as they think they do.  I don’t know how many times we shared things we had learned and we had a doctor or nurse say, “Of course.  I knew that.”  I wanted to scream at them, “Then why didn’t you tell us and save us from all the misery?”  They do the best they can but they are as human as we are.  They are committed, trained and very dedicated.  They are not gods.  Do not disengage your brain in the process.

I hope this helps.  Blessings.
