the daily purge 6-5-17


The Purging Lutheran introduces a drinking glass. A drinking glass with an eery face at the bottom. If you see an ovoid shape with a glowing ring around it, that’s what I’m getting at. You see the lightened nose in the center with … well, the eyes are kind of there but there is definitely a nose. And that’s what makes it eery; it’s a face which only has a nose. Boo! Except it couldn’t say ‘Boo!’ because it doesn’t have a mouth. Now, that’s eery!

This glass also has ‘clank’ marks that circle the upper half of the glass. These clank marks are made by spoons used by My Sweet Rib to mix milk and Quik for a late evening yummy, and by The Lad who uses spoons to mix water and sweet tea ingredients to make delicious sweet tea. Though the drinks taste wildly different they sound incredibly similar being made.

After several hundred grams of Quik and Nestea mixes giving our glasses a beatdown it is time to replace them with new glasses that have no clank marks or hideous faces to scare you while you glug-glug-glug your favorite refreshment.

Matthew 10:40-42

“We are intimately linked in this harvest work. Anyone who accepts what you do, accepts me, the One who sent you. Anyone who accepts what I do accepts my Father, who sent me. Accepting a messenger of God is as good as being God’s messenger. Accepting someone’s help is as good as giving someone help. This is a large work I’ve called you into, but don’t be overwhelmed by it. It’s best to start small. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t lose out on a thing.”
