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 2023-258: Contrails Anyone?

This morning, October 21, 2023, as I sat in the fading dark of the morning I noticed the track left by a jet far above.  It was high enough that the laggard sun illuminated it against a dark sky.  I thought about how I have seen these kinds of things most of my life.  There was some kind of arrangement of physics that made it happen, accidentally, or so I thought.

I started thinking that way this morning and continued with that frame of mind when I came inside.  The mosquitoes were waking up and I don’t find them good company.  It is hard to praise God with a buzzing around your ears.

Later I tried a new experience.  I decided to eat my oatmeal on the front porch.  Morning was well on its way to maturity.  The sun was up.  The world was bright.  As I looked up I noticed that the jet trail was still there and had not spread much, but I also noticed another one behind it, running parallel, that had expanded enough to be a ribbon instead of a line.  Odd, I thought.  I started looking around and saw a significant number of trails in various levels of dissipation.  My mind was stirred by one of the conspiracy theories I have heard:  Contrails.

This is a conspiracy that hides in plain sight.  It goes back to rain dances and rain makers that toured the country claiming that they could make it rain.  Evidently there is some factual basis for this.  If you want an up-front view check out the site called Weather Modification.  

That is not the conspiracy.  The conspiracy theory is that there is a nefarious plot being worked out by the forces of darkness to control the weather.  I think it is part of the WEF plan to starve us and get rid of the scourge of human infestation.  I generally don’t pay much attention to this theory but this morning, looking at the sky, I had to wonder.  There were a lot more than I saw as a kid and they seemed to be in a pattern.  

Keep looking up.  Keep in mind that conspiracy theorists are running close to 100% true.
