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 2015-104: Firsts: Weary Water

I never knew that water had to rest.

On the box of my new French press it gave tips for making the ultimate cup of coffee.  This one had a new contribution.  At least it was new to me.  You may have done this. 

I was told after the water boiled I was to let it “rest” for a one or two minutes before pouring it over the ground coffee.

Okay.  Can do.  I would not want tired water in my coffee.  It usually works out that I have some time to spare anyway.

How will I know if I achieve the perfect cup of coffee?

  1. You go to Starbucks and ask them. Or you can take a trip to Italy.........

    1. You obviously enjoy European style coffee. Both of those tend to be roasted to the point where it kills the flavor of the bean. It is like taking an delicate silk shirt, washing it in hot water and tumble drying it on hot.

      Grace and peace.


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.
