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 2023-153: Compulsion

Are you OCD?  How do you know?

I just had a “eureka” moment which pointed toward “no”.

I try to keep two rolls of toilet paper on the toilet tank.  I don’t like to run out and today I mounted the second roll.  I know, TMI.  I remembered to get two more and put them in place as backup and in doing so I noticed something.  One roll was right side up and the other was upside down.  The key ingredient to this story is that I felt no inclination to make them both right side up.  If I were OCD I would have felt a compulsion.

More tips for other issues in life may come, or may not.  I feel under no compulsion.

Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
