Just in case anyone believes I’ve grown soft and round while living in a retirement village, you are w-rong, w-rong, w-rong! I totally embarrassed Susan by going out in public with a toothpaste stain on my shirt. Don’t ever say I’m not ‘a man of the public’. I can ‘slob it up’ as well as…… Continue reading the daily bour·geois /bo͝orˈZHwä/, 6-11-20

the daily purge 1-10-20

The Purging Lutheran shall purge two books with one brick today. My father was a carpenter for his entire life and because of that some people always assumed his ‘measure twice, cut once’ DNA supply-sided its way down to me. Not so, Persistent Reader! My father trusted me to sweep the shop, throw bits and…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-10-20

Prologue: I have only a high school education. This is a neck lace My Sweet Rib gave up some time ago and The Purging Lutheran is fairly certain I know the reason why. It’s a pretty hefty feller and I can believe she would struggle standing up straight and walking in a straight line. You…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-12-19

It has been years since The Purging Lutheran read this book. Malcolm is a pretty cool guy. Blink is an earlier book of his which explains how we make quick judgments on the the things we see and read. The best I remember we take about 7/10ths of a second to decide if we like…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-4-19

People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them. Eric Hoffer Jeremiah 9:3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth on the earth… One danger of secret sin is that a man cannot commit it without being by…… Continue reading the daily galosh 11-26-19

Spoiler warning: The Purging Lutheran spoils everything. I haven’t read this book, which was released in 19-aught-86, but My Sweet Rib read it recently. It’s give-or-take a billion pages filled with details which could never make it into the film (unless you enjoy billion-minute films). It’s common knowledge that films of books tend to stray…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-13-19

It took a while to figure out some things such as … Q1. when to run the small group Q2. where to meet Q3. how to go about teaching a small group but most importantly Q4. why run a small group? A1.…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-30-19

Many Christians get angry when they suffer from disaster. They’ll ask, “If I believe in Jesus, why is He letting me get beat up on?” Well, everybody gets smacked around in life, so deal with what you are given with the understanding that the unjust receive similar treatment even if you don’t see it. Use…… Continue reading the daily poke of the view from the comic strip pew (part 2) 9-3-19

The Purging Lutheran and My Sweet Rib operated a bible study for abt 16 years ending a few years back when I ran out of steam. Of those ~16 years we spent five years studying The Gospel of Luke. That might seem like a long time for a study but it matters more how one…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-12-19

the pursing lutheran 7-9-19

The Purging Lutheran has gotten lazy by not keeping up with my daily purges. ‘Daily’ otter mean ‘daily’ and not relying on pictures of items tossed out months ago. So now it is time to be brave, pull my lips in from all directions, and make the decision to purge one final purse though I…… Continue reading the pursing lutheran 7-9-19
