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 2020-030: Super Bowl Evolution

This has been a good year for my mental acuity.  I knew that the Super Bowl was coming.  I found out that Kansas City won.  I am somewhat in doubt about the losing team but from the memes I am seeing I am thinking it was San Francisco.  Don’t bother correcting me if I am wrong.  I didn’t watch and don’t intend to watch next year.

I know there was a time I enjoyed the Super Bowl.  The interest gradually waned.  Eventually I took a nap during the game.  Sports were a big deal to me when I was young and limited.  I could tell you how many games the Dodgers were out of first place.  I knew the ERA of the Dodger pitchers.  In Junior High I lettered in football, basketball and volleyball.  In high school our church group played football every Sunday afternoon and still made it back for evening service.

No longer.  I like to play golf but don’t get out very often.  I only watch golf in waiting rooms.  For all other sports I always bring a book.

I hope your team won.  In reality unless you had a big bet going with your local bookie or need bragging rights at your local bar, it wont’ make much difference.  Not remembering your wife on Valentine’s day might matter.  Not going to your kids’ basketball game might have long term consequences.  As far as professional sports go, there will always be another game, another season, another team.

  1. Like I told another blogger, I lost interest in "sports" When the fellows I watched grew up and moved on.

    1. Or it could be that you grew up and moved on.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
