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 2024-008: I Wish


My mind has a hard time staying focused.  Here is the squirrel trail (rabbit trail, vectors, RAM, etc.) of the morning.

In the shower I was soaping up and noticed some rough skin which is checked by the dermatologist on a regular basis.  

That made me think about skin cancer.  People die of skin cancer but most don’t.

I observed that I don’t seem to get it on my back in spite of my youthful attempts to get a glorious tan.  I worked on it.  Even though I got to where I could work outside without a shirt all day and not get burned, I never developed the glorious tan that others seemed to get with occasional exposure.  Life is not fair.

That got me thinking about how we are all so different and no matter how hard we try we may not be able to match what others do.  That can be a good thing or a bad thing.  Often it depends on our attitude.

Attitude leads to a whole new rabbit trail.
