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 2015-418: Firsts: Mirror, Mirror, not on the Wall

It makes my nose look bigger.  It shows up every flaw.  It doesn’t give the complete picture.  But then, it was designed that way.  If I don’t like what I see I can flip it over.

I am talking, of course, about one of those mirrors that have a normal view on one side and a magnified view on other.  I have known about them for years and thought they were for things like plucking your eyebrows and putting on lip liner.  Since I never do those things they were off my radar. 

Then I got older.  Then my eyes didn’t focus as well.  Then I realized that instead of trying to lean closer over the sink I could bring the mirror to me and magnify the image.  It works.

If you have ever noticed those old men who seem to have missed spots when they were shaving, it looked that way because they missed spots when they were shaving.  If you know someone like that, buy them one of those cool mirrors for Christmas.  You might need to explain what it was for or they might start plucking their eyebrows.
