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 2017-343: Bird Brained

Not being a bird I can’t be sure what is going on outside my window.  It could be a mating ritual.  It could be competition over territory.  It might be a favorite seed that is being argued over.  It could be birdbrained games.  I don’t have any idea.

My attention was flagged by repeated motion.  It needs to be repeated or I don’t bother looking up.  I am at a stage in life and finances where I buy some glasses at the dollar store and wear them over my prescription bifocals.  It makes the regular part of my spectacles into reading glasses.  It works and it is cheap.  The problem is that in order to see anything further than the computer screen I need to take off the auxiliaries.  It isn’t worth the effort for one little shadow chasing across my peripheral vision. 

But they kept going, so I took a look.  It was interesting but it didn’t do much more than feed my enjoyment of the trees and wildlife outside my window. 

I will settle for that today.

  1. I suppose all of us who wear glasses have been called "four-eyes" as least once. Does that make you "six-eyes?"

  2. Indeed. When the kids at school thought it looked weird I would pull out a couple more pair and put them all on. I have been up to 12 eyed. I have no dignity.

    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.
