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 2017-141: Keeping Info Private

In many of my classes I don’t worry about students cheating on quizzes.  None of them know enough to copy from.  I had a different experience in a more advanced class.  I told a student to turn around and stop trying to copy the work of the guy behind him.  The one with the answers told me that I didn’t need to worry.  He could not copy the answers because they were written in cursive.

Who would have thought.  Maybe the way to encrypt documents has been right in front of us all the time.

Cursive, the secret language.

    1. Two hundred years ago everyone who was considered educated could read Greek and Latin to some degree. Now they can't even read English. It is called progress.

      Grace and peace

  2. I heard PUSD [Pasadena Unified Skull Demons] is going to stop teaching cursive. If so, that student is quite something.

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.
