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 2021-251: Going Buggy

Worried about germs?

According to an article at Study Finds you are crawling with them.

“A staggering 100 trillion microorganisms live in the human gut – both good and bad.”
The focus of the article is to get you to eat more yogurt.  That is my boiling down.  They talk about probiotics and Alzheimer’s, two buzz words that attract attention.  You can read it yourself if it pushes your button but I think the basic idea is that if you eat right you have a better chance of not losing your mind as you age.  Of course results may vary.

But for those of you that are concerned about wearing a mask and all the other neurotic impulses that are being shoved into our panic centers, get a perspective.  That is trillion with a “T”.  You are crawling with bugs.

The article also brings up the topic of “fecal transplants”.  That is slid in under the radar.  I have heard about this before in regard to weigh loss but never as a preventative for dementia.  Scientific research is full of little surprises.  I guess there is big money in the fear of aging.
