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 2017-225: Firsts: Wired

I am not known for my mechanical skills.  If you give me enough time, clear enough instructions and a large enough budget I can eventually get something done.  And of course necessity is always an encouragement.

We have been trying to get into our new home.  It is not finished.  The shower in one bathroom is tiled and plumbed but the soap dishes are in the shower that is not ready.  The rooms we are going to sleep in don’t have any window coverings.  We can work around that but there are other issues.  One of them was a show stopper for my wife.  We brought our washing machine from California but had to buy a used electric dryer.  The problem we ran into was that the dryer had a four prong plug and the wall had a three prong.  Electricity scares me.  200 scares me even more.  Our builder promised to take care of it but time is passing and we are moving regardless.  My wife is frantic so I Googled the issue.

On the internet it looks pretty simple.  I convinced myself that I would not electrocute anyone.  I know that circuit breakers are supposed to keep that from happening.  I bit the bullet, fetched my tool box and leaned over the appliance.

I think I was successful.  The drum rotates, I felt heat and I am still alive.

If I was not successful this blog may stop suddenly in the next few days.

  1. We'll be watching with bated breath!

    1. I have now lived 24 hours and used it several times so I am assuming it is a win.

      Grace and peace.
