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 2020-037: Firsts: Winning in the Men’s Room

There was a day when I could not change a diaper.  Two children and two grandchildren have changed all that.  This week expanded the experience. 

I was on duty in a medical office building.  I was watching the toddler while my daughter had a routine visit to the OB/GYN.  After an hour and forty-five minutes of waiting, my granddaughter started walking funny.  It was the dreaded blue line.  A diaper needed to be changed.  After waiting this long I knew my daughter might emerge from the elevator at any moment.  I also knew it might be another hour.  I remembered seeing one of those baby changing stations in the men’s room.  I stepped up like a man.

I won’t say it was the neatest job of diaper change but no one fell on the floor, nothing got dropped, the baby did not touch any unclean surfaces and the diaper stayed on.  I call that a win.

And yes, all hands were washed before we went back to polite society, only to find that my daughter had emerged from the elevator as soon as I left the lobby.

This is how I am spending my time right now.
