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 2016-77: Latex Gloves Replacing Jackboots

If I am ever arrested I will be in good shape.  I am learning the drill.  Every time I fly I opt out of the high radiation scanner and go for the pat down.  It is an obvious violation of our Constitutional rights regarding due process and probable cause but no one seems to care.  I am getting used to it.  Somehow I don’t think the police will explain each step of the way to me though.

Things must be getting tighter.  This time he checked my hair, maybe looking for explosive lice.  He also had me sit down and checked the bottom of my feet.  Bunion bombs?

If I were single I would retire and either move closer to the children or drive where I wanted to go.  Since I am not retired I will continue to make the acquaintance of a growing list of TSA employees.  Instead of brown shirts and jack-boots they sport blue shirts and latex gloves.

  1. At least they haven't told you to drop your pants and bend over after they put on those gloves,.......YET!

    1. I came close one time. When they put their gloves in the scanner the alarm went off. All they did was take me in a private room and search me the same way again. I was worried for a minute though.

      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.
