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 2014-295: Firsts: A Week without Fiction

I brought them, but I did not read them.

I try not to go anywhere without something to read.  I don’t want to be driven to reading the magazines in a doctor’s office or the posters on the post office walls.  I try to have at least one book or my Kindle.  When I go on a trip that goes doubly true.  This week away from work I brought a selection of fiction to read.

I didn’t even crack one open.

Part was because I began an old classical work on my Kindle.  Part was because I was with family members and they kept me busy.  For whatever reason, I realized as I was packing to head home that I had read no fiction from books this week.  I am not counting the news reports I read.

That is a first for me.  I think it is a healthy first.  May it be repeated.  There are so many important things to read from the old classics to the current issues.  There is no way to keep up but it is worth the effort.

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.
