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 2017-140: Smarter but Slower

I am constantly amazed at how the spell check on my computer works, or doesn’t work.  I have certain words that I use frequently and have a brain block against.  Here is how I spelled one of them:


The spell checker was clever enough to tell me it was spelled wrong.  That worked, but when I clicked for a correction it told me, “No suggestions”.

Really?  The correct spelling is “crucifixion”.  Surely that isn’t such a big stretch. 

Keep in mind that computers are not smart.  They are fast and generally have good memories but that is it.  AI will never replace thinking, at least for Republicans.

  1. I like the way that grammar check was apparently done by someone for whom English is a second language.

    1. I remember when that first appeared. Like much of new technology I was willing to give it a try. Once was enough. The grammar police hate the passive and other ways of expressing human thought. I never thought of the ESL approach.

      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.
