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 2018-087: Type A Conspiracy

I am getting tired of reading books written by people who are Type A personalities.  Such authors are aggressive, ambitious and generally very sure of themselves.  They tend to not stop to think of other people.  They also tend to write a lot of books telling people who are not Type A how to get the job done.  I remember all the books my wife tried to get me to read about being the perfect husband.  The anecdotes that were given usually showed a young man who was very self centered and insensitive.  The one that sticks in my mind was a guy who went out to play basketball with the guys on their first wedding anniversary and left his wife sitting alone at home with a romantic candlelight dinner prepared.  Really?

Maybe we need some kind of Government Personality Label like the nutrition labels on my soup.  It would be good to know if an author is Type A, a liberal, schizophrenic or married with children.  I would like to know what I am taking into my mind as much as I need to know what I take into my body.  I already have filters like this when it comes to sources of news.  If it is from the New York Times, the L.A. Times or the Washington Post I prepare my baloney filters and keep purging them as I read.  Usually I just don’t bother to read.  It is a little harder to discern if it is a book about marriage, gardening or raising children.

I don’t expect it to happen.  The kind of people that would need to write the regulations are all Type A and would put it at the bottom of their list.

  1. LOL - I hope you got your missus some books on how to be a good wife.

    1. You know it doesn't work that way.

      Grace and peace
