I did these cartoons to supplement a sermon I preached yesterday focusing on the story of Daniel. The first depicts his three friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego sentenced to die in King Nebuchadnezzar’s furnace. The second is Daniel being taken, upon King Darius’ orders, to be thrown to the lions. Some familiarity with biblical history/stories will help the reader here, but it’s not essential. Silly stuff, but fun for me to do.
Meant to balance out last Sunday’s cartoon. Change is good except when it isn’t. Tradition is great until it shuts the stained glass window on the new wind of the Spirit. Wisdom is more valuable than all.
Whatever era you harken back to as “the good old days,” I promise you, it was not as good as you remember it. Our memories are selective when it comes to the past and, too often, we try to recreate or cling to something that didn’t actually exist. Honor and learn from the past, but move on.
