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 2022-264: Ode to Old: Better Than a Dog

Spending time with our children and grandchildren has different urgency for me and my wife.

For her it is a necessity.  It is like vitamin C.  If she does not get enough she will get emotional scurvy.  The need is more acute now that they are living in the same town.  Have they changed?  Do they still remember Grandma?  Why haven’t they called?  Keep in mind they are 2 and 4.

For me it is a luxury.  If I can’t have it, at least I can dream about it.  The memories and anticipation can be gratifying.  I have pictures that I can look at that bring a smile.  That surprises me.  I have never been a big one for pictures but now I find myself suggesting them for Fathers’ Day and such.

If you have grandchildren you probably know of what I speak.  If you don’t then at least you have your dog.
