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 2018-180: Baby Talk: All the parts

As I watched my granddaughter wiggle and squirm it occured to me that in that little body are all the parts necessary to build a house or drive a car.  There is a brain in that head.  There are muscles and ligaments galore.  She has all her fingers and toes.  In spite of that she can’t even grab a rag to wipe her slobber, let alone wash the dog.

It occurs to me that we are like that as adults.  Even as I move through old age I feel like there are still potentials that I have not tapped and levels I have not reached.  One thing that keeps me from reaching new goals is that I have a lot of baggage to maintain.  Babies don’t have much to do beside trying to figure out how to get their fingers into their mouths.  I have my projects and my “honey do” list.  I have deadlines and handicaps. 

I also still have potential.  So do you.  It is never too late to start a project.  You may never finish but it is better to leave it unfinished because you ran out of time than to leave it stillborn.

Now if I can just stop drooling.

  1. Is this your way of announcing your venture into pot growing?

  2. I know you are in the snowflake generation but remember that for ages "going potty" does not mean sneaking off to a corner and toking a number. Snowflake potty involves putting destructive substances inside your body to kill your brain not getting rid of leftovers. I will concede that in both cases the protagonist expects someone else to clean up the mess.

    Be careful what you write. Remember Big Brother is listening.

    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.
