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 2017-425: Modifications

I can’t help it, I read labels and directions.  Usually it is a waste of time.  Occasionally I find something that is important to know.  Other times I get a laugh.

My daughter sent me some gadgets that she picked up in a store in Japan.  The label is in Japanese and English.  On the back, under “Notice”, I was given this warning.  “Please do not bring close to the fire.  There is a fear of modification.”  I would think so.

On another it explained the purpose of the object, “Small mesh case with zipper and erastic wristband.”  At least they got “wristband” right.  The stereotype was by the stereotyped.

  1. I'll always remember the Chinese-printed instructions to put the "happy" nut on the bolt and tighten. I must have spent a half-hour trying to figure out which one was the happy one; they all looked the same to me.

    1. The happy nut was the last one you tried.

      Happy New Year.

      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.
