Double Helix Church

Cartoon of a woman answering the the telephone. The solicitor is selling a DNA testing machineCartoon of a woman answering a telephone. She says, “No thank you. I am pretty sure our church does not need a DNA testing machine.

I am not sure a genetic testing machine would make background checks in children’s and youth ministry easier. But all the same, I think churches will have no need for this office machine of the future. Actually, I hope the average office won’t need it either!

The Hazards of Church Bats and Squirrels

Maintenance issues abound at churches, especially the older ones. I never attended a church that had a belfry. But I wish I did so I could say at least once there were bats in the belfry. It seems squirrels in the attic would create an equally erratic outcome.

No Easter Egg-stravaganza here

Cartoon of a pastor and a boy with an Easter egg basket. The Pastor says, "Eggstravaganza was yesterday. There's no Easter eggs up here."
Judging by this cartoon, perhaps I have Egg-stravaganza PTSD. I have been through my fair share of Easter egg hunting events. It can take over a church before you know it.

In fact, if the egg hunt was inside, the pulpit would undoubtedly be used as a hiding spot. I am guessing the pastor knows that is the case and he his hiding the really good chocolate, peanut butter eggs inside the pulpit. I know that is where my grandfather hid the really good treats from his grandkids. 

I drew this cartoon for the Church of God ENewsletter.
