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 2017-119: Ode to Old: Dirty Hairy

Why do old men look like they need a shave? 

The most obvious reason is, because they do.  Old men are not known for the power of memory.  We forget.  We are also not stand-outs in vision.  Unless we have an old woman around it is easy to slide past that moment.

Old men have white hair.  White hair tends to be lighter and it is harder for the razor to cut.  It takes a lot longer to get them all and since I can’t see as well as I used to, I miss some.

Old men get ornery.  If they don’t like us the way we are then a pox upon them.  In short, we often just don’t care.  Sometimes that goes for taking showers too but that is another topic.

Of course it is possible that we are just trying to be trendy and adopt the metrosexual look of today’s young male model.  It looks to me like most young men have forgotten to shave for about three days.  The problem is they have to work to keep that look.

Don’t feel like you need to point out the problem.  I either won’t hear you, won’t care or will forget.
