Saturday 5:30 service, Pastor McClean presiding We sang pleasant old-timey worship songs. These included “Here I Am to Worship”, “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever”, “More Precious Than Silver” and “How Great is Our God”. Thank you, Pastor and Paul. We followed the liturgy which included our confession of sins – dark, miserable and…… Continue reading the view from the pew 6-30-18

Aw, geez! Really? Not again. This is a curling iron*. It is used to curl hair. This one looks like it self-curled its own electric cord … and failed miraculously. Welcome to The Bad Math Hour. A curling iron operates on 85 watts of electricity. A (typical?) lightning bolt contains 10 billion watts of power. Supposing you were…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-29-18

This is a curling iron. The Purging Lutheran read up on Wikihow about how to use a curling iron. It gave six steps for using a curling iron. First time users will use these easy-to-follow instructions: 1. Heat up the curling iron.  2. Make sure your hair is completely dry. 3. Brush out any tangles…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-28-18

This is a curling iron. It has nothing to do with the sport called curling.  The Purging Lutheran fell into that trap yesterday. Lesson learned. Anywhat, let us get back to the curling iron. Before harnessed electricity was the norm our ancestors used fire-heated rocks to fashion hair into curls. But hot rocks were hard…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-27-18

This curling brush should not be mistaken for a curling brush, the broom used in the sport of curling. While this curling brush is useful for dandifying a young woman’s hair it is hardly appropriate to sweep the ice surface in the path of a curling stone. It’s self-limiting as the cord is barely able…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-26-18

It’s gonna be ‘beauty products’ week here on The Purging Lutheran’s web-blob. My Sweet Rib struck a rich vein of purgeables while mining underneath our bathroom sinks. How do these things accumulate? We’ve lived in our home over 15 years and probably haven‘t looked under our sinks a total of eight times yet there these…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-25-18

Saturday evening service, Pastor Sattler presiding. While Rhoda played the piano we sang the following hymns: “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” (opening), “Eternal Father, Strong to Save” (the sermon), “Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me” (offering), “The Lamb” (distribution of Communion) and “Lord, Take My Hand and Lead Me” (closing). Thank you, Rhoda! We prayed during…… Continue reading the view from the pew 6-23-18

Today is ‘Clean Fan Friday’. This is certainly the same model The Purging Lutheran tossed out yesterday but not the same one. What are the odds two like fans would give up their ghosts within days of each other? I don’t know because I don’t play games of chance. I don’t roll bones. I don’t…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-22-18

Today is ‘Dirty Fan Day’. What causes a fan to build up smudge, grunge, and g’lopp on its blades? Is it caused by air pollution? Probably not here in Central Indiana. Did it visit smog-riddled Los Angeles? Has it spent time near an active volcano? Did it just finish reading a trashy romance novel? There…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-21-18

Vidal Sassoon: The Movie is a documentary film about Vidal Sassoon, ‘the man who changed hair forever with just a pair of scissors’. The Purging Lutheran hasn’t seen this show but based on reviews I can say there is no harsh or tart language in it. Car chases and crashes, if any, would be few…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-20-18
