While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.” – Matthew 27:19

  (this is a piece of fiction written by an unknown author)   “… “It suddenly closed in on me Gaius, the impact of how trapped I was. The proud arm of Rome with all its boast of justice was to be but a dirty dagger in the pudgy hands of the priest. I was…… Continue reading While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.” – Matthew 27:19

the daily house interrogation, 2-19-20

As with any competent homebuyer, it’s worth our salt to have a home inspection before purchase. Eric and Candy spent about ninety minutes pouring over our home’s nooks and crannies making sure all drawers, light switches and drains are working dutifully. Except for a little this and a bit of that everything is sound. Now…… Continue reading the daily house interrogation, 2-19-20

the daily purge 10-17-19

Ah! the magic of the I-pad allows The Purging Lutheran to take an ordinary picture, in this case one of My Sweet Rib’s neck laces, and make it look as something sinister. Ordinarily this is an ordinary picture of an ordinary neck lace but with a little bit of photo editing I made it look…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-17-19

the daily purge 6-20-19

This suggests that falling in a love with a thing will later become a disillusionment when dealing with its consequences. Buy a boat? Yay! Freedom on the waters!…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-20-19
