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 2016-59: Headlines: Dementia Hope

At my age I had to check out the Drudge teaser, “Dementia cure may be just five years away”.  Before I clicked on the link I made a little bet with myself, actually two bets.  My first bet was that it would be in an English newspaper.  I won.  My second bet was that it would be based on pure speculation and hope.  It was a two-fer for me.

Dementia is something that hovers on the horizon for all of us as we get older.  This article, like so many others, gives no evidence that there is any cure coming down the pike.  It is simply a retiring executive who has made his living researching dementia making a statement that he believe a cure will be found.

I guess it gets readers.

  1. I wonder if anyone reports actual news any more. Perhaps the general public doesn't have an attention span long enough for more than just sensational headlines and sound bites.

    1. I guess we live in a culture with dementia.

      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.
