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 2017-088: Goodbye Privacy

I think I would vote to ban cell phones from restaurants if given a chance.  Of course that would mean that my wife would demand that I not go into restaurants because then she could not call me.  Right now as I am trying to think, an old man (I should talk) is sitting across the room having a raucous discussion with someone on his cell phone.  I really don’t need to know every detail of his personal life.  I wonder if it occurs to him that the world is listening.

Now he is up walking around while he talks on the phone.  Maybe he is senile.  Maybe he is just a Democrat.  Maybe they are the same.

Do people who are concerned about security and privacy talk on their phones in public?  Are they worried about the government reading their e-mails and recording their phone calls?  Then why do they broadcast their lives to a bunch on strangers?

I understand there are devices that will jam cell phone reception but they are illegal.  I would love to have them in class at school, in church, and, of course in restaurants. 

Like most new laws, if people would simply be polite and considerate of others the regulation would not be necessary or sought after.

  2. As the publik school system has taught me, there's this thing called an inside voice. Perhaps that man was home-schooled.

    1. Based on my observation of public school inmates I think that is another lesson that they have ignored.

      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.
