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 2018-199: On the Street: People to the Left of me...

We are on the road.  I am enjoying the time we are spending with friends and family.  At the same time I am totally worn out.  I am an introvert.  People drain me.  Non-stop people just keeps sucking it out of me.  My wife is just the opposite.  She thrives on having people around.  She is driven to interact.  When we went to the doctors office I thought I was safe but as we waited for the receptionist to get to us she initiated a conversation with an unsuspecting man waiting for his wife.  When we flew recently she talked the entire flight with the woman next to her while the husband slept and I read a book.

We are all so different.  Life is complex.  Since we are on a road trip I have no place to escape.  If I start going crazy, let me know.

  1. Into each marriage a little torture must fall.

  2. Sounds EXACTLY like my wife of 47 years and I. I feel your pain friend. I always enjoy your blog.


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.
