Was this a painting accessory or was it a chew toy or was it both? If it was only a chew toy was it meant for then-TPL-pup, Daisy, or did one of the household humans try to eat it? Have you ever just run out of ideas regarding what-you-do on a near daily basis? Do…… Continue reading the daily purge 7-3-19

This was because my father would have a…… Continue reading the illustrated lutheran 6-27-19

This spring has been relieved of its duty and been purged. Summer is just a day or two away from poking its head out of the sky and proclaiming, “I’m right here!”. Until then let The Purging Lutheran give a late welcome to our present season, Spring. I will do this by introducing this comic…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-19-19

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’. All I found…… Continue reading the daily purge 3-8-19

Because The Purging Lutheran has too much time on my hands I like to google lotsa nonsense. After having decided to purge this Sonic the Hedgehog game I goobered around and asked senor google – “What is Sonic the Hedgehog’s real name? – not expecting anything but, yoi! and behoi!, what to my googly eyes…… Continue reading the daily purge 12-21-18

Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Saturday 5:30, Pastor McClean The songs were played on guitar by Pastor. They were “Oh, Come, Oh, Come, Emmanuel”, “Open Your Heart and Sing”, “Give Us Clean Hands” and, lastly, “Jesus, You Are Holy”.  We confessed our sins to God and, in turn, were absolved of those sins. We read responsive psalms and…… Continue reading the view from the pew 12-8-18

Really? This is why dinosaurs had to die? Buried deep in the Earth, squished and transformed into that mysterious elixir called petroleum*, coaxed to the surface through an oil rig, made into various combustible fuels, hard plastic forks and this rubberized floor runner. Oh, the chair counts, also, but it’s not being purged. Yet. Why…… Continue reading the daily purge 10-29-18

It’s National Friday the 13th Day here on Gatewick Avenue. In honor of this bless-ed secular holiday The Purging Lutheran is running a contest.

In case of a tie, contestants will be…… Continue reading the daily purge 4-13-18
