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 2020-028: Thanks Thoughts: Water

This morning as I was cleaning up after the joy of feeding my granddaughter breakfast I was reminded of the miracle of water. 

In modern America we take a lot for granted.  As I was using the steady flow of water to wash out oatmeal and scrub a pan it crossed my mind about the multitude of hands and faithful utility workers that went into producing this simple commodity.  I live in a part of Texas that can seem hot and dry much of the year and yet even in summer I know where water flows.  The problem is that it is not potable.  It looks good and feels good but is infested with all kinds of critters and chemicals that don’t do the body good.  So before if flows out of my tap it passes many hurdles.

We know some of this because we are within spitting distance of a water tank.   A technician comes to check that tank at least once a day, sometimes he is here twice, and that is just in the portion of the supply line that I can see.

So I am thankful.  I realize that there are politicians in the pockets of the extremist environmentalist who want to take away this glory.  I am hopeful that they will not be able to reduce us to a third world level. 

Shower while you still can.
