Welcome to Churchtoons! Every week (as close to Sunday as I can get) I try to post a new cartoon. Here are my latest:

Pslam 42


Christ prays
 Even Jesus felt the loneliness of God's distance, as demonstrated by his words on the cross (Matt 27:46).  When we feel like God has abandoned us, Psalm 42 gives us words to express our pain. How have you felt abandoned by God, and have you been able to pray something as honest as Psalm 42 in those times? While we don't know why God is sometimes distant, we do know that we can trust He will return.

Memorial Day 2020


memorial day 2020This year we recognize the sacrifice our front-line medical and other essential workers have made. By stepping into situations that could compromise their health, or result in death, these heroes join the ranks of police, fire-fighters, military, and all the others who willing put themselves in harm's way for us. John 15:13. How can you best honor our living heroes, before they paid the ultimate price?

He knows you, do you know HIM?


Most people who believe in God, believe that he already knows all about us. What might be surprised that God invites us to know Him too. In Psalm 86, David declares how good God is, based on David's personal experiences with and on the written history about God. Is it possible that your history is actually God revealing himself to you? Can you compare your story with the story of God's people in the Bible?

God knows your name


We consider it a great honor when someone we think highly of knows us by name. In Exodus 3, God calls Moses with a miraculous sign (a bush on fire but not burnt) - but maybe more significant than the miracle of the burning bush, was that God knew Moses by name. The gospel is that God knows you by name, He knows everything about you and He loves you.

The horrid houseguest

While we are in the middle of any kind of suffering, time may seem to stand still and we may become unable to see an end to the pain. The writer of Psalm 30 provides hope that our suffering is temporary. Like a bad house guest, the suffering may linger and cost us much. We should try to remember that there will be a time when the suffering is gone, leaving us to rejoice.

What about after deliverance?

10 lepers were healed by Jesus, but only one returned to give glory to God for the healing (Luke 17:11-19). All of us experience pain and suffering, but when we have been delivered from those times, do we stop to be thankful for that deliverance?

When Jesus is scary

Although our gospel accounts of Jesus describe him as meek and humble, John's revelation of Christ describe him as so powerful, he caused John to faint (Rev 1:12-18). We might wonder why Jesus appeared as such a frightening visage. John lived in a time of persecution and pain. Jesus appeared to John as the powerful savior that can save us all from our most horrible enemies.

Welcome


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.
