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 2021-284: First World Problems (FWP): While I Slept...

My phone rearranged itself while I slept.  It is not my imagination.  It is not paranoia.  

One of the steps in my morning is to check the icon that gives me the outside temperature.  I am not so concerned about the projected high or the forecast for the week.  I just want to know if it is warm enough to sit on the porch for the beginning of my morning worship.  

The button was not there.  I swished sideways and checked the other screens.  If you don’t know what that means, think of turning the pages or checking another notebook on the shelf.  No button.  So I started looking.  I found it under and icon labeled “weather” that also held the button for “camera”.  At the same time the picture for Weather Underground had not been moved.  

I did not do it.  It was changed in my sleep.  Now my question is, “What else did it change without my permission?”

I don’t like phones.  I don’t like cell phones.  I really don’t like smart phones.  My utmost contempt is for devices that think they are smarter than I.

What if they are right?
