No matter where you go, it can be difficult to get access to leaders. Sometimes, it is because leaders get interrupted continually. Sometimes, it can be because of personalities that clash. Other times, it may be because there was a great sale on moats and alligators. It can be for a host of reasons.  

This cartoon was not taken from a real-life experience. Nor were there any reptiles harmed in the creation of this cartoon.

I drew this for Kidzmatter Magazine.

Was That Really Anonymous?

cartoon of a man at a desk talking on the phoneThis cartoon has a man at a desk and telephone. He says, “Hey Ed. It’s Pastor Mark. If you really wanted to send that comment anonymously, you shouldn’t use your home email address.

There are ways to send anonymous emails, but I’m not telling. Besides, if you think you have to say it anonymously, you probably shouldn’t say it at all. 

Cartoon: Different Kind of Shepherd

Cartoon of a flock of sheep

Cartoon of Sheep are in a pasture. One says to another, “Don’t get me wrong! I love our shepherd. It’s just that I prefer a different style of herding.”

Leadership can be tough when nobody wants to be a follower. It’s even harder when everyone in the group is about aggressive as a sheep, yet refuse to be led. I’ve seen a few pastors face this situation. You have to beware of sheep with fangs!

I originally sold this to Leadership Journal.
