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 2015-434: Ode to Old: At Any Age

I was in my car heading out of the parking lot.  A man started waving at me.  When he pointed at the top of my car, I got the message.  I had left coffee cup sitting on the roof.  I know that has never happened to you.  I put it in the column marked “getting old” and moved on.

As I drove I journeyed down memory lane.  One that stood out blind sided me in my 20's.  I got a call one night from someone who asked me if I had lost a Bible.  Evidently I had put it on top of the car as I was loading and forgot about it. 

That was in my 20's.  Either I have always been old or forgetting things is part of the human condition.

  1. I suspect it's more the human condition. I did that kind of thing more when I was young; nowadays I've learned to double check my actions before I move on. I've locked myself out or left something somewhere too often.

    1. That brings up other memories. You are right. I try to establish patterns and habits that keep certain things from happening. I have sets of keys for different places with overlapping keys in case I mess up.

      Grace and peace

    1. I guess that means that I can only expect things to get worse.

      Grace and peace.
