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 2016-329: Firsts: A Time for Coffee

I am finding there are times in life when the bells and whistles actually get used.  My word processor has more little adjustments and buttons than I have time to look at, let alone figure out.  I can “create a redacted document”.  Not only do I have doubts if I want to, it sounds vaguely immoral.  Under legal I have a button for a “pleading paper”.  But occasionally something calls out to be experimented with.

For years I have been aware that I could program my coffee maker to start the brew before I got up.  Since I rarely set the time on my coffee maker that wasn’t too practical but as I started getting up earlier and earlier and trying to figure out ways to streamline my morning, I gave it a try.

It works.

Now I can stumble a little longer without needing to count out scoops of coffee.  Since I don’t have what anyone in my family would call a discerning palate, it doesn’t bother me if the coffee is “stale”.  So shoot me.

You are never too old to learn, just too old to remember what you learned.

  1. I never touch the stuff. I like it in my nostrils, but NOT on my tongue.

    1. It could be that you are not yet old enough to have had enough taste buds die in order to enjoy the taste. I can remember being where you are.

      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.
