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 2019-130: Time to Raise the Curtain

I guess it is time to get my nose back on the grindstone.  I had what is called a “trigger finger”.  If I made a fist with five fingers only four of them would open.  It makes it rough for shaking hands.  The treatment is routine minor surgery but it puts your hand in a useless state for a time.  I am at the point where I can pick up a piece of paper if I am careful and type if I keep proof-reading but it will be weeks before I can pick up a hammer or push a lawn mower.

It is amazing the actions that demand two hands.
Opening cans
Buttoning pants
Tying shoes
Washing the opposing arm pit
Touch typing
Cut a steak
Then there are tasks that can be done if you are very careful.
Blowing your nose
Putting tooth paste on a brush
Putting on sox
Making non-instant coffee
Eat a good hamburger
I told the doctor if this were a hundred years ago I would just work around the weird finger but it isn’t 1919 so let the cutting begin.
