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 2022-150: Weight Loss Suggestions

Do you have a family member who is struggling with their weight?  I have some suggestions on how you can help based on my experiences of the last few days.

Don’t make pizza at home.  If you do, don’t ask if they want some.  This is a double-whammy.  On one side it is hard to say “no” to the smell and appearance.  Strong will power is not a part of the personality of overweight people.  On the other side you don’t want to hurt the cook’s feelings by rejecting their effort and offering.  Rationalization never runs out of kinks.

Don’t make lemon-blueberry layer cake and text, with a picture, that you are bring some by the next day.

Don’t buy bags of chips and such and leave them around, open, on the counter.

Who knows?  Perhaps if you are a little more careful in removing temptation from the dieter you might find yourself losing a few inches too.  Not that you need to, I’m just saying.
