Call and response

There is much that can be and has been said about God throughout the centuries, some of it with a degree of certainty that strikes me as odd, or even arrogant. Some may think the imagined liturgy below swings the pendulum too far in the other direction. Fine. I see it as being comfortable with and welcoming to Mystery.

Same-day surgery?

8-9-16 doubt

Here’s the third in a batch of ten cartoons submitted in February that were rejected by The New Yorker magazine. I was pleased with both the idea and the drawing with this one.

Seven more to come–stay tuned!

I think church attendees tend to do this naturally, anyway, but it would be an interesting experiment to offer labeled sections and see where people chose to sit.

4-20-16 confession

Hello, again. Sorry for the lengthy absence. I got out of the cartoon rhythm and had a difficult time relocating the groove. Also, I’m transitioning to a digital drawing tablet and need to make some computer upgrades to facilitate that new reality. Hope to be up and operational with that within a couple weeks.

The above cartoon came as a result of finishing Norris’s book, Amazing Grace, which I recommend if you are spiritually minded. This is an actual quote about her husband that amused me. I’ve come to “see” the line between logic and mystery as a beautiful, blurry mess. To me, this is essential for mature belief.
