Verse of the Day

Home at Last [revised]

My bad, a lot of homework and not enough caffeine will be my excuse. Apparently, I forgot to mention that the reason for the article on Johnny Hart was that he died the day before Easter. One of the reports is here.

Home at Last


Among the more faithful expressions of the faith is Johnny Hart whose ministry in this last decade or so has upset, comforted, enlightened and blessed many. He drew comics. BC and The Wizard of Id were his tools.

"BC" was a powerful expression of Johnny's faith in Christ. Our politically correct and fearful Oregonian pulled the comic years ago because of its Christian content. I got to read him via the net and Washingtonpost [kudos to them].

Without shame or apology, I'll admit that I've printed out his comics and put them on bulletin boards at our church. His Christmas, Palm Sunday, and Easter comics were usually able to summarize the truth in a quick easy manner.

Yesterday, for some reason, I didn't even look at his comic. Instead, during our cantata I thought, "Dang, I was going to get that and put it on the door."

God bless you Mr. Hart. You've done good. You've blessed the Body of Christ. Peace to your wife and daughters. I pray for more like you to take up the pen.

Peace

Putting things in perspective

I can't help but notice that our branch of Christ's body isn't the only one with "issues". Check out the recent article from the UK Independent. Brings a whole new meaning to gutter talk.

Have a memorable Easter

Peace
