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).

My generation blazed the trail for separated shoulders, dislocated toes, (mostly…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-14-19

The Purging Lutheran does my due diligence when it comes to poring over facts and figures on items I am throwing away. Usually, there’s too much information to use during my 30 – 120 minutes of therapy. I looked up what I thought would be oodles of synonyms for the word ‘moccasin’.

The Purging Lutheran is tossing out one of My Sweet Rib’s pocketbooks/purses/clutches/grips/hides bought long ago. Why does she buy so many fashion accessories? Why do hipsters buy fanciful coffees? Why do baby boomers keep talking about themselves? Why do bees make honey? Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? Why do stars…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-29-19

When The Purging Lutheran types the word ‘technology’ your mind probably races to envision all sorts of science fictiony computers, robots and self-replicating viruses. And well it should but did you know that technology is nothing more than the extension of the human body? Computers are attempts to categorize or enhance the creativity/computational skills of…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-11-19
