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 2016-293: Ode to Old: As I Remember

I don’t know if you have spent much time around people who have reached the age where their memory is more imagination than fact.  Some are very good at hiding it and if you don’t know them you think they are still firing on all cylinders.  Have I joined that crowd?  I find myself questioning my memory and I find my wife questioning it even more. 

She was talking about some event in our past.  I can’t remember what it was but I do remember that the experience she was relating did not seem to be the same moment in history that I had lived through.  More and more often I find that the past she details does not reflect the past I experienced, or should I say thought I experienced.

Is she embellishing or am I editorializing.  Is it both?  I guess the bigger frame for the question is, “Am I losing it?  Is she losing it?  Are we both losing it?”  If it is me, I might need to retire immediately because I am not sure it is safe to have me in charge of children.

Will I still have internet access when they lock me away?  Will you know the difference?  Will I know the difference or just think I have already posted for the day?  Am I already locked away but I just don’t realize it?

You do not need to answer any of those questions.
