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 2023-314: Memory Lane

Memory is always a challenge.  People of all ages have moments when they can’t wrap their mind around a specific word.  It just gets more frequent and frustrating as you get older.  Much of what we experience is just an increase of the brief spells as youngsters.

I am working to fill in the gaps.  This comes when someone will share something I was a part of and I have no memory.  I think I already shared about getting my son to eat green beans.  I don’t remember, so I will repeat it.  He was stuck at the table until he finished his green beans.  I kept warming them up and they kept getting drier.  He claims that what finally convinced him to eat them was that when the ones on his plate were too desiccated to eat, I opened another can.  At that point he knew he was not going to win.  I had lost that memory.  Now I have added it.

More recently my daughter shared how I used to take her to the men’s room to use the bathroom.  I don’t remember ever doing it but she said I would check to make sure it was empty, get her installed in a booth, stand guard in front until she was done and tell her when the coast was clear.  I can’t believe I don’t remember, but she does.

I expect to know more about my past next year than I do today.  What anticipation.
