Two weeks ago The Purging Lutheran had the flu. Ugh! Today’s issue is called food poisoning. The suspect is sausage used for a breakfast casserole. Bleah! Numbers 11:18-20 18 “Tell the people: ‘Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The Lord heard you when you wailed, “If only we had meat to…… Continue reading the purging lutheran 3-29-19

The Purging Lutheran suspects that the person who made yesterday’s clay hearts also made these clay crosses. Well, that’s about it for today’s purge. These and the hearts are sitting in a plastic Kroger bag waiting to be delivered to our church yet My Sweet Rib completely ignores them. Is she hoping they’ll just ‘go…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-28-19

After The Purging Lutheran was newly minted as one of Jesus’ saints I bought many crosses, necklaces and other Christian-themed doo-dads to give to Sunday School students (when applicable). I don’t even remember what the standard was for earning/winning/deserving one. Or were they given for non-students? Maybe I didn’t even mean to giving them away…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-27-19

Welcome The Synonym-izer. When The Purging Lutheran wants to get my point across I like to use as many words as possible to my point across. Today’s word is fraud. And today’s purge is a wallette which contains many pockets with which to hold credit and debit cards. Have you ever had your credit card…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-26-19

Because without dogs we’d never know what the insides of things looked like. The Purging Lutheran is grateful tennis balls aren’t filled with Alien-like molecular acid or we’d have any number of holes in our floor about 75′ deep. Who needs that? Fortunately for our home and All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club*  tennis…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-25-19

Saturday evening service with Pastor Sattler. We sang songs played by Paul on the piano. Like last week it was simple and unassuming. We sang “Jesus Sinners Doth Receive” (opening); “Great is thy Faithfulness” (sermon); “Oh, That the Lord Would Guide My Ways” (offering); “Breathe” (Communion); and “You Are My All in All” (closing). Thank…… Continue reading the view from the pew, holy cross lutheran, 3-23-19

The beer? So-so. “For the millionth time, it’s a gargoyle, not Satan”, so says the Stone IPA website in response to the million times they’ve been asked if their logo is a picture of Satan. May be they otter take the hint and make their logo look a little less satanic and a little more…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-22-19

In regards to the un-helmeted character shown above on the case of this game going to a gararge sale The Purging Lutheran will paraphrase my pastor, “Fine, if you want to make bad choices then don’t be surprised by bad consequences”.  Not wearing helmets in battle, knee pads riding a skateboard, seat belts in your…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-21-19

There’s a movie out there, Lifeboat, directed by A. Hitchcock about a lifeboat filled with survivors from a sunk ship. As it turns out every couple hours or so a person dies or is found missing from the boat without anyone figuring out how it happens. Well, one person knows because he (or she) is…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-20-19

My Sweet Rib continues her fashion disposaling with this handsome piece of jewelry being sent away to adorn another woman’s neck. But why? Why is she forsaking her bling? Her blang? Her blung? The Purging Lutheran asked her why. She responded: I don’t wear it anymore. Someone else might like it. When pressed further she…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-19-19
