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 2024-106: Thanks Thoughts: The Blessing of Toilets

It occurred to me this morning that one of the great blessings that we have in our day and age is the blessing of hygiene, or if you wanted to say the blessing of sanitation. We take for granted flush toilets.  We take for granted soap and hot water.  Neither one has been a part of history and the lives of our ancestors.

I have read that one of the greatest extenders of the average life span is something as simple as soap and water.  Right up there with it is the flush toilet.  Yes, the same flush toilet that the government has been messing with by reducing the water flow.  These simple tools have done the heavy lifting in stopping the spread of disease.  We inherited them.  Thank you, Ancestors.

What a blessing.
