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 2016-247: Temporary Geekdom

It isn’t just modern technology that mystifies people.  At school I have been called to help people get their computers working.  Am I a geek?  No, not even close.  My great strength is that I have the rare ability to see it an electronic gadget is plugged in or not.  It seems to be a rare talent, but I wear the mantle humbly.

My skill came into play at home.  The air conditioning had stopped working.  The only change had been a professional maintenance man who had made some adjustments.  My wife knew my skill level and scoffed at me taking a look.  Since my man-card was in question I looked anyway.  At first I was mystified and was ready for her to call the expert back and then I noticed a cord that ran one way for no reason.  When I pulled it out I saw that it had a plug on it that was not attached to anything.  On the wall was a receptacle with nothing in it.  I put the two together and...the fan rumbled to life.  We had A/C. 

Sometimes the ability to observe and think can trump ten thumbs.  If only fixing the country were that easy.
