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 2023-218: On the Street: Et Tu Cactus

As I am sure you have heard, it has been hot lately.  That is not all bad.  One advantage is no mowing.  Grass, and even some weeds, somehow stop growing when it is hot and dry.

As I was walking this morning I saw a testimony to the conditions:  The cactus is wilting.  Cactus is designed for hot, dry weather.  It is a survival plant.  Today I noticed that one large growth was not only pale and turning brown on the edges but was collapsing in upon itself.  Once I noticed it in one place I noticed it all along the way.

The weather app on my phone is being psychologically supportive by acting like we have a chance of rain today.  I don’t believe CNN.  I don’t believe the L.A. Times.  I don’t believe the weather app.  I still like to use my personal version.  I stick my head out the door and if it feels hot then I decide it is hot.  Works every time.
