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 2016-255: Ode to Old: It Isn’t My Fault, Really

Why does my coffee cup only leak on mornings I am wearing a light colored shirt?  It wasn’t a senior moment.  I hit my mouth square with the cup.  In spite of my protests, I still have a stain on my shirt and a day facing middle school students ahead.

It happened when I was half way to work.  I had been drinking from the cup for 20 minutes.  Suddenly I felt an unexpected warmth on the thumb wrapped around the bottom.  It was a trickle that made my shirt look like I had been dribbling my soup.  Why didn’t it leak when I pulled out of the driveway?

I guess it is just a way in which the coffee gods are trying to teach me humility.  It wasn’t my fault, really.  If it was I would remember, right?
