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 2022-310: Benefits of Food Shortage

I have been on the road and spending time in airport waiting areas.  It gives me a chance to do some people watching in between reading and writing.  I am thinking that a bit of a food shortage might not be a bad thing.  People seem to have been supersizing it quite a bit.

Being overweight is not always a result of just eating too much but also of eating the wrong things.  If we are suddenly snookered by a combination of shortages and soaring prices, the foods we choose will probably change.  I was thinking about my diet.  I start the day with oatmeal and have significant portions of popcorn during the day.  That is not a bad thing.  Those food items are relatively cheap and have decent nutrition with reasonable calories.  It is the quest for protein that will be the issue.  

Meat will be expensive.  What I eat has already gone up significantly but so far I can afford my preferences.  If I am forced to go to things like beans and rice for protein the calories climb quickly.  The result, of course will be growing obesity in my life.  That could lead to a return of my diabetes and all the problems that go with too much weight.

Start checking out what might be substituted and begin to buy a bit extra every week.  Don’t worry, it won’t make you a crazy prepper.  It will make you a careful provider.

Pray that the harvests will be great both spiritual and agricultural.
