Digitized Ten Commandments

Cartoon of Moses and the Ten Commandments

“And it would be great if I can get this as a spreadsheet or word processor file.”

Are things any better with the immediacy of technology? Maybe not. Maybe it’s a wash. Digital files are more convenient and instant, but they can be deleted or corrupted in an instant.

Then again, Moses the original Ten Commandments were written in stone and Moses smashed them to pieces because of the Israelite’s idol worship.

Safety is the best policy

Cartoon of a boy with a cast. He says to a teacher, “Do you want to see the reason you had to rewrite your safety policy?”

Snowmen and Eternal Life

Cartoon of boy saying to a snowman, "Psst! I know where you can get eternal life."

I thought of this idea when I watched Frosty the Snowman during Christmas and thought of our desire to live beyond our normal lifespan. Morbid? I don’t think so. As it says in Psalm 90:12, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”

We may disagree on faith and theology, but most likely, we can agree there is a part of us that wants to live beyond our physical bodies. There is something in us that wants to live eternally. Our physical bodies are as fragile as a snowman. But our soul longs for Something much more.

No-Shave November for Youth Pastors

Cartoon of a woman telling a bearded man, "The church bylaws ban youth pastors from participating in No Shave November."

Sometimes, a little facial hair can raise the ire of the local church lady. It’s not that it is spiritually offensive. I propose it is because the scruffy look reminds Eunice of her younger years when she dated her dear Grover.

Happy No-Shave November!

I drew this cartoon for the November, 2015 Church of God Newsletter.
