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 2023-273: Another Non-Physical is over

I just had my annual physical and I continue to feel positive about the doctor that I have. He has a good bedside manner and he seems to know his stuff. The problem that I might have is that he is a doctor of the 20th and 21st century and he does everything by the numbers.

Not only does he do it by the numbers but he doesn’t do any of the traditional things that I was used to. There’s no checking of the abdomen. There’s no checking of the throat.  He does not look in my ears.  Forget tapping your knee with that little hammer.  Everything has come down to blood tests.

Maybe that is enough.  It does not fill me with confidence.  Medicine has become a business based on long list of side effects to keep from getting sued, countless tests to keep from getting sued and lots of paper work.  When I went in this time I asked why all the forms since I filled them out last year.  They said I needed to sign my consent to be treated.  My response was that if I didn’t want to be treated I would not be in the office.  They were not amused.

I am blessed because I am basically healthy.  I don’t know what I will do if I am ever faced with big decisions.  My prayer is that the Lord will take me fast when the time comes.
