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 2021-164: On the Street: Salt Is Back

Even Texas has been brainwashed.  We have always been able to go out to eat but somehow wearing a mask when you came in the door became unnecessary when you sat down.  Viruses are very picky about when and where they infect.  An additional irritation was the lack of condiments on the table.  We finally developed a habit of ordering salt, pepper and ketchup when we ordered our meals.  Sometimes they would bring the salt in an open dish which I guess is safer than a shaker on the table.  Then we learned that the servers were often very protective of our health because they would bring us two of those little packets.  So we started saying, “about ten of those little packets.”

Last week we were mystified when the server did not bring us any salt.  I was about to remind her when I had an inspiration.  I looked at the back of the table and, lo and behold, there were two shakers there.  One had white granules and the other black.  

The Salt is back.

I have noticed it other places.  The salt shakers are back.  Maybe this will lead people to leave their masks at home.  Maybe not, but the salt shakers are back.
