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 2016-217: DEFCON: We Were Not Alone

DEFCON was held in two connected casinos, Bally’s and Paris.  As I was walking to my room I passed a screen that announced what was going on in the casino.  I noticed that they had gotten our name wrong.  They had the activities listed of the Association of Professional Piercers.  I figured that most attendees were paid, thus professional.  They penetrated security to do their hacking, thus they were piercing.  After a few days I realized that this was another conference going on side by side with DEFCON.

I Googled it and it is real.  The APP is just what it says it is.  They were having their 21st  annual conference.  They are almost as old as DEFCON and from the looks of some of the geeks they could be attending both conferences.

If you are at a meeting and a bit bored you might read up on the APP.  Expand your world.  I will put it at the bottom of my bucket list.
