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 2015-119: On the Street: Danger in the Hood

Hoodies are dangerous. 

As I was on my way to work recently I car rushed up behind me and rode my tail.  Glancing in the mirror I could tell the driver was wearing a hoodie.  It was just a passing observation.  When he got bored reading my license plate he changed lanes and zoomed past me.  At that point I realized a good reason not to wear a hoodie while driving.  The driver could not see.  In order to look cool in a hoodie you need to pull it forward.  When you do that you block your peripheral vision.  It does not do any good to turn your head, the hood doesn’t turn with you.  This guy could not see anything except straight ahead.  That is fine when you are speeding but doesn’t help when you change lanes.

I wonder if they will find time to ban hoodies while driving.  It seems a bigger hazzard than cell phones.  Of course some fool will yell, “Racist” if you bring it up but they will probably yell it no matter what you do.
