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.

Why you can expect change in a marriage.

Change is going to happen, whether you want it or not. That’s just the nature of things. Some of us will gain hair where we don’t want it and others will long for the days when we had hair.

If you celebrated any wedding anniversary, then you simply aren’t the married to the same person you once were. We all change.

That’s a good thing. Celebrate the fact even our relationships change. Nothing stays the same. If an organism is alive, it is either growing or dying.

Take the time to make sure your relationship is growing even as the both of you are growing. Invest in your marriage like you would tend a garden.

Your partner probably isn’t the same person you married. And come to think about it, she may be very glad you aren’t the same person she married!
