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 2016-26: Ode to Old: Oldest Teacher

I had thought to be retiring at this point.  It ain’t gonna happen.  At the mention of the word “retirement” my wife gets a frantic look in her eye and starts mumbling to herself something about “home all day.”  She even got me a mug for Christmas that makes some disparaging comment about a retired husband being a full time job for the wife.

I don’t have any idea what she is talking about.  Maybe that is part of the problem.  I saw a headline about some woman who is still teaching at 102.  I shudder at the thought.  She gets that look in her eye.

  1. Maybe your wife needs to get a part-time job, if she doesn't already work out of the house, and you could do the same. It would give you both a little extra money and a break from too much togetherness.

    1. She has health issues that would make it hard for an employer to count on her. She has already brought up the second part. Which side are you on anyway?

      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.
