The Incredible Floating Christmas Tree

Cartoon of two fish staring at a tree. One say, "Every Christmas, it's the same thing. When will they make a Christmas tree that won't float?"

Christmas trees can be one of those traditions that can cause disasters. Is it too big, too short, too full, or too sparse? Did your family always do a real tree or is artificial the way to go because of all the sap and clean up?

And don’t even get aquatic creatures started on the hassles of getting a tree. You just can’t keep one in an aquarium without weighing it down with a ton of lead garland!

Giving Tuesday Surprises

Cartoon of a dog and cat. The dog says, “Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone you donated to a dog rescue organization.”Welcome to Giving Tuesday! This has nothing to do with the cartoon, but if you’re looking for a great organization to give to today, I recommend a place I’ve worked for. Elizabeth’s New Life Center in Dayton helps families make godly life choices. 

There are, of course, many organizations that can use our help. If you favor another cause, be sure to make a difference today.

The Hazards of Church Bats and Squirrels

cartoon of a janitor with a squirrel on his head. He says, “We don’t have bats in the belfry. But we may have squirrels in the attic.”Janitor says, “We don’t have bats in the belfry. But we may have squirrels in the attic.”

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.

I drew this for the April 2017 Church of God CHOGNews.
