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 2022-238: Weight a Minute

I don’t talk a lot to people about weight and diet.  I will respond but I don’t bring it up.  There are several reasons for this.

The big reason is I keep losing ground myself.  We usually don’t want to talk about our failures.  I track everything I eat.  I have seen my weight change 5 pounds in a week, up and down.  It usually has nothing to do with consumption.  That being said, I have not given up and am still in the battle.

Another reason is that I know how easy it is to distort our small improvement into an overall gain.  My wife regularly announces she is down a pound.  I have come to assume that when she is silent she is up a pound.  If I took her reports as the whole story she would be withered enough to be blown away by a good belch.  We can lie to others.  On weight issues it doesn’t hurt them.  Ignoring truth for ourselves might be a worse situation.

I also don’t like to bore people the way they bore me.  There are times when I have a hard time not rolling my eyes.  I want to do unto others as I would have them do unto me even if they don’t return the favor.

Bon Appetit
