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 2020-317: Ode to Old: I Had It Just a Minute Ago

Memory is not always a matter of age.  For some reason certain concepts, facts and processes have never set down in my brain.

I can never remember the difference between perennial and annual flowers.  I have to look it up every time.  Why could they not have been called single year and multiple year?  It would have made my life easier.

I can never remember how to do percentages.  I always have to sit down and work through the process.  Once I get it I can go to town but if I wait too long before I need to calculate again I have to start the process over.

Certain streets I always mix up.  I grew up in a town that has generally straight streets in a grid pattern.  Many of them I have been traveling over all my life but I still can’t tell you which is which from memory.

Which is higher, the flush or the straight?  When you play cards do you go clockwise or counterclockwise?  For that matter, which way is clockwise?  

I guess I could go on forever this way.  I expect to add new things I can’t remember.  I won’t worry until I don’t remember that I don’t remember.
