Stamp it Out? Embrace it!

December 1, 1996 |

My friend Elin has two daughters, Ingrid and Kristin. Because of discussions we've had, Ingrid suggested that I weave a banner stating "Stamp out Lutheran guilt!" But where to hang a banner?

I eventually asked a friend who owns a rubber stamp company for help. My daughter Linnea did the drawing, and my friend stamped out the design on "left over" pins.

You should be ashamed of yourself, Evelyn, for coming up with this idea, and especially for involving impressionable young people. I had no idea there were Lutherans like this in Grand Rapids. No idea at all.
