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 2021-328: A Seuss Suggestion

Dr. Seuss wrote a book called The Cat in the Hat.  I am suggesting there needs to be a sequel called The Cat in the Lap.

When we returned from Thanksgiving on the east coast we brought back a cat.  This is not just any cat, it is the cat the brings great joy to my grandchildren.  They will soon be relocating so it became the job of the grandparents to move the animal.  Even though I don’t care about a cat more than about 20 seconds I do love my grandchildren.  So, we hauled an animal across country.  When we tried to stop for the night all went well, until 2:30 A.M.  At that point this albatross decided that it was time to protest all the injustice of the world.  We gave up and hit the road, and recognizing the pointlessness of trying it again, we covered almost 1,000 miles that day.

Since my wife has a cat of her own this one has adopted me.  It sleeps on my bed and is always clamoring for attention.  This would be an ideal cat for someone who can’t live without dependent, degenerate descendants of jungle felines.  I suggested we find a little old lady who is lonely and make a donation.  I got nothing but frosty stares in return.

There are times I wish I were allergic.

Until that change in my metabolism takes place or the grandchildren arrive I am destined to have a cat in my lap.  I guess there are worse things to suffer.
