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 2020-077: A Blip

At this point it looks like the glimmer of yesterday was just a blip.

It is a good illustration of how we are all living in an information fog.  Sometimes it is the fog of guesswork masquerading as data, sometimes simply incomplete information and sometimes outright manipulation.

Always keep your salt shaker handy so you can get a grain when you need it.  The site I listed yesterday revised the numbers later.  The numbers were still low enough to look good but not as dramatic as before.  Okay.  You give data as it comes in.

What makes me get out my salt shaker is that the website it always quoting from the Cuomo daily briefings and ignoring what the president has to say.  That indicates a view of reality that is a bit biased.

I am still optimistic.  A county near me with a city of one and a half million people had five deaths as of yesterday.  Notice it wasn’t five death yesterday but “as of yesterday”.  This is not something to panic over if you have a clean bill of health based on a history of clean living and wash your hands.

And don’t forget to watch for the unicorns spreading the virus.
