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 2016-179: Firsts: Haircuts

I remember the day that we took my son to the barber for the first time.  I think we have pictures.

Now he has turned the tables.  We had a big family event and my wife wanted my hair to look good.  Since we were out of town she did not trust any barber to do the job right so she said my son, who cuts his own hair with a cool kit he bought on line, should trim me up and make me look good.  Since I only look at my hair once each day, I was fine with that.

So for the first time my son cut my hair.  It set me to thinking that this could be a pattern for when I am so old I can’t get to a barber or they won’t allow me out in public.

It came out fine, this time.  I am sorry that we don’t have any pictures to commemorate the event.

    1. I didn't say it took long, just that it happened.

      Grace and peace

  2. I have a 100 y.o. mother. Every time I take care of one of her intimate needs, she reminds me that she used to diaper me. What goes around comes around. Julia

    1. And as an elderly parent I know the feeling of sharing that knowledge with my children. It is best done in public when it might embarrass them.

      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.
