My pastoral colleague at Redeemer, Rev Hans Stout, has a pretty good side hustle going: producing and selling shepherd slings. At first glance, Han’s doesn’t seem like a weapon forger with his warm personality and smile, but the blood of the Vikings courses through his veins, and, the Biblical story of David and Goliath and the stones and sling is part of his story, and he has two sons. He’s making and shipping about a dozen slings a week!
Last Sunday he dropped off the shepherd slings for Jenny to sell at the Christmas on Camano show that opens tomorrow. They are only $10-$11, perfect stocking stuffers for the youngsters in your family.
He’s even got a tutorial on how to use a sling. Check it out. This is how we presbyterian pastors roll :).
You can pick up a Shepherd Sling at our Christmas show. If you can’t make that, then order one online from Rev. Hans Stout ancient weapon maker.
