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 2017-363: Where Did My Sun Go?

Did you know the sun moves?  I don’t mean from east to west.  Even children in public school know that.  They may not know east from west but they know the sun moves.  I mean it moves from north to south.  I have always known this intellectually but living in Texas it has become very clear.

When we first spent the night in our new house I noticed that the sun came up on the left side of our kitchen window.  I have watched it move to the right until it is now coming up behind the roof of the garage and we still have almost two months of movement coming. 

I know to some of you this is old hat but for me it is an unusual phenomenon.  In California I had to struggle with the sun in my eyes as I drove to work or shining through my rear view mirror going in the other direction.  Here it is a pleasant observation as I stand by the coffee pot.

Retirement has its moments.

  1. Yup, that's why solar homes figure winter and summer angles for their roof overhangs.

    1. I can see why ancient cultures might get concerned about the sun disappearing except for the fact that it always comes back.

      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.
