Rings


Pastor Snyder answers a question about wearing a ring to symbolize your commitment to Christ. He says he wears his seminary ring which features a Chi Rho, I wear this ring. It is a replica of the one that Martin had Cranach make for Katie. My wife and I got them for our fourth anniversary, which was a sacrifice on my wife's part, because she thought it ugly at first. I don't know if the jeweler himself is Lutheran, but he operates out of a heavily Germanic part of Texas (think Shiner Bock). I don't think Martin wore it himself. I don't know if men wore wedding rings at all in that culture. It has a sword on it, so I don't feel effeminate wearing Katie's ring.

I think Katie had it made for Martin. It was based on a ring she wore as a nun in Nimbschen.

I've had mine (as a grad. gift) from my "Katie" since `93 and it's
still in as good condition as when I first wore it. I doubt if it would work as a gift for confirmands, since I believe my wife paid about $75 for it and that
was 13 yrs ago!
