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 2016-163: Fathers’ Day Strikes Again

On Fathers’ Day my kids decided it was time for me to take a step in technology.  I hate it when that happens, but so far I have been able to adjust.

I was just fine with the smart phone they bought me a few years ago.  I have adapted to what it could do for me and learned to ignore the lure of aps that were nothing but data gathers for the commercial world of the internet.  It was becoming useful in checking my personal e-mails but I had refused to link it to my school account.  The map function was of great use.  I had learned to work with the hot spot that gave me internet access through my computer from almost anywhere.  I was good to go.

They decided it was not fast enough.  I am sure that they have other secret schemes for moving me ahead without the kicking and screaming but those will only emerge in time.  It is going to take my son a few days to get it all set up.  I don’t expect it to change my life but it will make them happy.  My guess is that they will put a tracker in so that they can find me when I start to wander drooling through a mall someday.

    1. Android. Nexus 5, I think. I think they could add the cool stuff without messing up the controls. For instance on my old phone to clear all the notifications there is a button at the top of the screen that says, "clear". Picture that. On the new one there is an icon at the bottom with staggered lines.????

      This is progress.

      Grace and peace.
