Jesus washed the feet of his enemy

The powerful story of Jesus' washing the feet of his followers in John 13 demonstrates an unprecedented humility. As we consider this act we might forget that one of those who received this demonstration was Judas, the one who had already betrayed Christ and would later that day deliver Christ to be crucified. Do we treat our enemies the way Christ treated his enemies?

Handling God

When the apostle John describes his time with Jesus Christ, he remembers being able to touch and handle the Son of God 1 John 1:1. It's hard to imagine the God who created us came to us in a form that was so accessible and welcoming. When you think of Christ, do you think of him as this inviting? Do you imagine someone who let you shake his hand or give him a hug?

God sent His Son into poverty

When Mary and Joseph gave their offering as part of their presentation of Jesus to their religious community Lk 2, it was also a public declaration of their poverty. Not having the money to purchase a lamb, they presented a pair of doves. God gave provision for the poor and identified with them in a unique way by placing His Son in their care. How does this identification influence your thinking?

Rough Hands (re-post)

When the God of all glory came to earth in the form of baby, the first hands to touch him were likely the callused hands of the working class. While kings and rulers were denied an audience with the new born king, shepherds were in attendance. What does that tell us about the roots of Christianity?  (re-posted from 2016)

Advent: Waiting with a servant

The great promise of the advent season is that Christ will return and make things right for everyone. While we wait for his return, we can take comfort that the coming Christ often shows up in our lives as a gentle servant, ready to fix our personal, shattered worlds (Is 42:1-4).

Advent: We wait for our coming king

Micah 5 describes a conquering king who will defeat all of the pain and suffering we face everyday. Our suffering is ascribed to the sin that now rules the world. When our king, the Lord Jesus Christ returns, we believe that this sin will be destroyed and with it, our pain and suffering. Can you take comfort in knowing that our suffering is temporary?

Advent: We wait with a promise

While Christians mourn with the broken and work to be like Jesus by helping the vulnerable
(James 2), we also recognize our inability to truly change the world. The great hope of the Christian, is that one day Christ will return and bring justice and mercy to our broken world. Genesis 3 gives us that first glimpse of coming savior.


Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.

These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.

I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
