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 2018-236: Election 2018: Fear Management

A thought about fear of flying.  I don’t have it.  I have a growing dislike because of TSA and a continued reduction in size of the seats, but I have no fear.  I do, however, know a couple of people who have that fear.

I don’t understand it but I know it is real.  They generally deal with it by not flying.  I have one friends who just will not get on an airplane but she still manages to get to family get togethers and go on vacation.  How does she do it?  Amtrak.  It takes her a long time to get there but get there she does.  She did fly to Hawaii about 10 years ago because it was an important family event but she left fingernail marks on the armrests and her screams still echo in the jet stream.  She brings real meaning to the expression, “Never again!”

The other used to be a globe trotter.  She literally traveled around the world.  She did things like back packing in the Himalayas as a single woman.  Now she is afraid to drive across town and almost panics when she has to fly.  She does fly on occasion but only when there is no choice.

That is how you deal with fear of flying.  You don’t use it as an excuse to avoid something you don’t want to do.  Unless you are a Democrat trying to derail the Republic.

November is coming.  Your part in draining the swamp is to vote against the critters.
