Last week The Purging Lutheran ousted electronics cords – plastic cables with wires in them. Those wires looked like snakes. This week we have a shower hose – a metal cable with water in it. This cable looks like a water snake: mutation division Besides mere appearance what other reason is there to toss out…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-30-18

Crosspoint Church runs an ad at a local film theater. They use it to promote their Thursday evening worship but what they present can be applied to their 11 AM service. The sanctuary is both easy to access from their common area and because service occurs in mostly dark surroundings it’s just as easy to…… Continue reading the view from the pew 4-29-18

To the untrained eye these might look like bookmarks an ordinary person would use to ‘mark’ * their places in a favorite novel or school book. But if you look closer you can see painter’s paint on them. What gives? It turns out that these aren’t bookmarks at all!

Publisher’s note: Living and writing from a parallel universe close to yours allows The Purging Lutheran to write about things the way they are here but not necessarily the way they are where you live. If you’ve ever been confused about what I write don’t worry about it. Natural laws and people here are nearly…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-24-18

Some people shrug their shoulders and say ‘wires?’. The Purging Lutheran responds by cracking his knuckles and saying ‘wires knot?’. Indeed, ‘wires knot?’. A knot is what happens when wires sit in the kitchen ‘stuff drawer’. They get tangled up a little bit more each time the drawer is opened then shut. There’s no stopping…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-23-18
