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 2021-161: Skip the Big Smile

As I was walking toward the front of the house I passed the front door and saw two packages on the floor with the tell-tail smile on the ends.  I almost screamed in frustration.

I am working hard to not patronize businesses that are out to destroy America while they wallow in the benefits it provides.  Everyone’s favorite mail order spot is on my list, or off my list, depending on how you think.  I have not ordered anything from them for months.  I needed a vacuum and by a little research I found one locally.  The price was close enough that I didn’t even check to see if it was lower.  I have found that I can get pop-corn from some producers at a good price.  I am looking into alternatives to the coffee I had as a staple.  I can’t even get it from the company that cans it, at any price.  I will make the sacrifice.  There will be another coffee out there.  I wanted an inexpensive battery tester.  The temptation was to order it from the Big Smile.  A little checking shows I can get one locally at a good price.

I will accept that for some items and in some locations using the Big Smile might be the only option you have.  I also submit that such emergencies are not as overwhelming as most people claim.  We can wake these people up but only if we are willing to get off our derrieres and exercise a bit of delayed gratification.

You can do it but it needs to happen before they require the vaccination card linked to your credit card in order to do business.

Trust me, it is in their dreams.
