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 2022-152: A Losing Formula

I am happy to say that a shortage of baby formula will not, nor would not, effect my immediate family.  I understand that it has become the norm but understand that “baby formula” did not exist before the advent of women going to work to subsidize the dream of affluence.

To my knowledge my children never tasted any kind of baby formula.  As far as I know my grandchildren are the same.  Of course that meant that we bought used cars and often shopped in thrift stores but those were trade-off we were willing to accept.

I remember reading or hearing the theory that the American Indians were defeated the day they accepted their first steel knife.  They gave up their independence and eventually came to depend on modern technology that they could not duplicate.  Maybe we can say the same for the mothers of America, and the world.

I have not done a search but there might be some place on the web where they will tell you the ingredients for making you own baby formula.  I assume that most families depending on commercial substitutes are past the time where nursing is an option.

One of the tangents my mind takes is how modern Proregressives* are all for killing babies in the womb and this is just a back up plan.  No, I don’t actually think they are that clever.

  1. Apparently the FDA has warned folks against making your own baby formula. I guess it's better to let the child starve? Good grief.

  2. Surely you jest!

    Grace and peace
