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 2019-192: Kudzu’s Revenge

I wonder if I am laying the seeds for some future biological disaster.  If not I might at least have a story line for an eco-thriller.

When I am active in the yard I sometimes notice that my socks have become infested with little seed pods.  I would call them burrs but they aren’t big enough.  They are seeds of wild plants that are doing their best to spread.  What I try to do is pull them off and carefully drop them in the trash can.  It is not big deal.

Then my tangents strike.  These are going into a plastic trash can liner.  It will be tied up and put in a trash can where it will be hauled to a land fill and buried far away from sun and air.  What happens if some future budding scientist digs up the bag, opens it and allows the seeds to escape into the environment?  The title of the film could be “Kudzu’s Revenge”.

How many other potential planet destroyers have I buried in mother Earth?  I guess if she is really a god she can handle it.

  1. If you actually have kudzu there, you should know that it's edible by both man and beast when young.

    1. I would venture to guess that a large portion of the "weeds" in my yard are also edible.

      Grace and peace
