Cartoon of a boy and dad. The boy says, “Let’s sit in the balcony so I can pretend I’m Zacchaeus.”
As a kid, I was fascinated with balconies. Maybe it was because our church didn’t have one while other, bigger churches did. Maybe it was because that was where all the rebel kids seemed to go so they could get away with mischief. Or perhaps it was because whenever I heard the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus, I imagined Zach in a balcony instead of a sycamore tree. After all, balcony and sycamore tree almost rhyme, right?
I drew this cartoon for the June, 2012, Church of God E-Newsletter.
