church message series piece

December 28, 2009

The new series at is going to be called “Life in the Balance.”  It is going to focus on the call to believers to forfeit their need (rather, their desire, or perhaps felt-need) to be in control, to be in security, and a generally easy life.  We say we want God to use us, and that we trust Him to be in control in that, but as soon as the Spirit asks us to release our death grip on the balance beam, and actually walk across it in radical, prodigal faith, we let out a hearty “Hell no!” and hold on for dear life, preferring the illusion that we are somehow in control.  This is the drawing I did for the series:

    Hey Cole, I like these a lot. I’d love to see one where he’s sort of losing it (you know, unicycle tipped halfway over, him trying desperately to balance out the other way). I can see the super dynamic pose now…

    Actually, you’ve inspired me to try one of my own.
