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 2017-163: Watching Out for the Cooties

When will the offerings of smart phones drive people to actual living contacts again?  How insipid does electronic media need to be to get people to turn back to books?  What does it take to want a face-to-face conversation?

I am not an extrovert.  I am not a people person.  I can get along and even enjoy human contact but a perfect day for me does not need anything social.  When my wife was out of town for an extended time once she asked me, “Do you miss me yet?”  I made the mistake of pointing out that she had only been gone a week so how could I be lonely?  Sometimes honesty is not the best policy.

That being said, I prefer being within punch-in-the-nose distance when I have a conversation.  I want to be able to see if they have their fingers crossed.  I want to read their body language.  Did you ever wonder if the talking heads on TV had a full suit on or just the coat?  The other day we wondered if funeral directors dressed the bottom half of the deceased. 

Someday I am hoping that the younger generation will realize that they are living on the edge of the desert and the real life is just a handshake away.

I am aware that I am offering this electronically.  No you can’t have my phone number or address.  You might have germs or cooties.
