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 2022-025: Firsts: A Cultural Experience

On a recent trip from Virginia to Texas we spent the night in Cottondale, just east of Tuscaloosa.  We were tired of eating out so we looked for a grocery store in the area.  Since we had never been to a Winn-Dixie, that was our choice for shopping.  When we got out of the car my daughter told her children they were in for a “cultural experience.”  

The store was nothing to be ashamed of.  It was clean and well organized.  There were more gaps on the shelf that I was used to in Virginia or Texas but as is usually the case you could get the type of food you wanted but maybe not the brand.  The thing that mystified us was the total lack of saltines of any description.  They had all the cracker variations except saltines.  We figured is was because of the hate crime of calling white southerners “crackers”.  Maybe it was because the aisle was blocked with people telling cracker jokes.

Then my daughter got in line behind a welfare queen who was having some kind of problem with her free lunch.

It was an interesting experience.  Far better than California but still not Texas
