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 2019-139: On the Street: Sun 1, Sprinkler 0

It is hot in Texas.  Okay, it is hot a lot of places.  It is called summer, or, if you are a liberal, climate change.  If it were a loaf of bread you would say it is browning up nicely.  One of the advantages of the seasonal system is that the grass has stopped growing, thus I don’t need to mow or feel guilty about not mowing.

I noticed as I have been out walking in the dawn’s early light that one of my neighbors has been using his sprinkler.  I notice this because I see it spewing water over his lawn.  What I don’t notice is that the grass is getting green.  In fact I can’t see any real difference between his yard and everyone else’s.  I think the sun is winning.  I would guess that the grass turning brown is a much a seasonal thing as a lack of water.

I will keep walking.  He may keep watering.  I know the sun will keep shining.  I expect to see green in a month or so.  More climate change.

  1. At he has the pleasure of spending more on his water bill than you! - lol

    1. I think he told me he is on a well so it would be his electricity which might be even more painful.

      Grace and peace
