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 2024-135: Firsts: Power and Blow Outs

For me, it is a double timing.  First I got a new used lawnmower, a riding mower.  This is the first time I’ve ever had one.  I actually did not want one but circumstances made it happen.  I I will be able to live with it but I think it opens a door to a whole new category of expenses.  

Then as I was mowing the lawn, I blew a tire.  It totally ripped the tread all the way across.  So now I have the experience of having to change a tire on a riding lawnmower.  It is not going well.  It is one of those situations that means repeated trips to various stores looking for tools and supplies.  My basic experience is that given enough time and a solid budget, I can get some things done.  I get no satisfaction from these projects.  They still need to be done.

I am looking at this as an adventure.  I am trying not to look at it as a mystery.  My wife thinks it is a fantasy and I am not sure I would argue with her.
