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 2018-198: On the Street: Vocabulary Lessons

As I continue to learn from the antics of people around me I am realizing that there are a couple of words I need to remove from my vocabulary:  Always and never.  If I can’t remove them I need to be careful how I use them.

This insight was gained by a recent “discussion” in which I was accused of always doing one disgusting thing and never doing another.  It reminds me of one of my favorite bits of bathroom humor.  How many men does it take to put down a toilet seat?  We don’t know because it has never been done.  I think it is funny but I also know that it didn’t take two many experiences of sitting down on the cold reality of the toilet rim to get me into the proper habit.

I won’t bother sharing all of the things I “never” do or the many that I “always” complete.  I am sure that your list would overlap quite a bit with mine.

  2. Tried to never use never. Never succeeded, always failed.
