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 2018-231: Baby Talk: Baby Pride

Have you noticed that babies really don’t care about the fancy do-dads on their outfits?  I noticed this as I was changing a diaper.  In order to change one you need to get the child out of all the cute stuff and find the working material.  This involves snaps and zippers, possibly velcro.  Since most of the costumes we are using are passed down from previous generations I don’t see much velcro.

The grown women of my life always know when I changed the last diaper.  It isn’t that I get it on backwards.  The give away is that I don’t bother with all the snaps.  I figure the kid doesn’t care or know she is supposed to care.  You can’t say that about mom and grandma.  So far it has not caused me to be banned from diaper changing but I can keep hoping.

Adults are just the opposite.  Maybe I should say men are just the opposite.  No one else really cares if their nail polish matches their hair bow.  At least I can speak for the men out there.  Guys, when was the last time you noticed that a waitress had fingernail polish that matched a pin she was wearing?  My wife did and asked about it. 

How often have you had a wife say, “That shirt doesn’t match those pants”?  Does it bother you at all to learn that little tidbit.  Or have you heard her say, “You look good in that color”?  Does it make you run out and rebuild your wardrobe?  I thought not.

Think about the words of Jesus,
(Matthew 18:3 KJV)  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Babies are full of philosophical wisdom.
