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 2015-155: Still More Dumb Questions

School is coming to an end for the year and one of the questions I keep getting is, “Are you going to miss me?”  My typical responses take two directions.  First, I will ask are they going somewhere.  Second, I will point out that I am not throwing anything.

Will I miss them?  Some I will miss like a headache that goes away.  Some I will miss like I miss someone who never reads my blog again.  A few have wormed their way into my heart.

The missing will not really start though until next year.  It is like when my wife goes out of town.  If she is only gone for a week all I notice is that I need to do the laundry.  As the time extends the absence grows.  When the day comes that one of us dies, it will leave a real and permanent hole.

Will I miss you?  Sure, but probably not until next August.

    1. Like I said, some are heart-worms.

      Grace and peace.

  2. You may not miss some of them until you discover that the next crop is WORSE! lol

    1. You could have at least waited until August to remind me of that. Actually, now is probably better so I can get used to the idea.

      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.
