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 2021-338: Love in Action

I seriously question the sanity of animal lovers.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not an animal hater.  I am an animal tolerator.  That has become necessary because my wife and daughter are cat lovers.  I attribute it to the taint of French blood.  It gets really serious because my granddaughter is also a cat lover, at three and a half.  I am resigned to my fate.

I watch this cat I am tasked with.  It belongs to my granddaughter.  We have it with us to make their move from the east coast a bit easier.  There was no question of caring for it.  The little one wants it.  It is done.  The cat seems to have adopted me.  It follows me around and sleeps on my bed.  It seems to think I actually care about it.

Yes, I pet it and scratch its chin.  I feed it and now I am responsible for the litter box.  It pays me back by throwing up on the carpet and yowling at the most irritating times.  I thought about adding cat allergy to my prayer list but the one to go might not be the cat.

Animal lovers probably leave the baking powder out of their cookies too.
