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 2019-150: Firsts: The Back of the Bus

For an average citizen I do a fair amount of flying.  I don’t go enough to benefit from the big time Frequent Flyer bennies but I did go through the process to guarantee TSA Pre when I fly.  This flight had a new experience.  For the first time I got off the back entrance of an airplane.

I have known they exist but I thought they were for emergency evacuations.  This may have applied in a way.  We were at least 40 minutes late taking off.  It was something about the First Officer getting sick and they needed to bring in a replacement.  That was a better excuse than the time a stewardess got stuck in the bathroom but a long wait is a long wait.  I assume that since we were so late at arrival that they decided to empty from both ends to speed the process up.

It was like the old days.  We had to go down some steps, walk across the open and climb stairs at the other end.  Just another day in the life of a world traveler.
