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 2022-088: Oxymoron Coffee

I am staying in a time share and in a moment of curiosity used the coffee they had left me.  It was labeled “gourmet roast coffee”.  I am sure that somewhere there is someone who does not drink coffee that thinks that might be true.  If you keep reading you see that it is decaffeinated.  My coffee snob credentials are still in the mail, along with my check, so I am not sure I am qualified to make a value judgement but it seems to me the words “decaffeinated” and “gourmet” are not meant to be printed on the same surface.  

Have you been in those coffee roaster stores that have lots of open bags of coffee beans?  Each variety is labeled with the name and an exotic description of the unique qualities of the coffee below.  It has been a long time and I was not looking at the time but I don’t think the coffees that were priced in the $60.00 a pound range came in decaffeinated.  

I could be wrong and as hard as it is to imagine, I could be right.
