Accessorize the Reformation

Here's the perfect gift for the hard-to-shop-for Lutheran in your life, or for

Here's the perfect gift for the hard-to-shop-for Lutheran in your life, or for that matter any friendly neighborhood church reformer. Martin Luther Bobble Head Dolls, produced by Old Lutheran (www.oldlutheran.com), are hand painted and weigh in at 1 pound, 7 ounces. Old Lutheran (which calls itself "the center for Lutheran pride!—but not too proud") also advertises "Lutefish—the other white meat" and asks "WWLD—What Would Luther Drink?" Ten percent of Old Lutheran's proceeds go to a Lutheran ministry of the month.
