ASBO Jesus Friday: Local Church


(Click to enlarge)

I thought I would try something different for awhile: ASBO Jesus Fridays. In case you weren't aware, ASBO Jesus is Jon Birch's cartoonist's Blog. A little left of center, his cartoons are sometimes funny, sometimes controversial, but always challenge me in some way. I don't agree with everything he say (or implies!) but I often enjoy his artistic approach to exploring faith issues. As a caveat I will say that I don't support everything he writes but believe I can still learn something from those I disagree with. Enjoy, and feel free to comment on what thoughts and questions the cartoons bring out for you . . .

By the way, this one stood out to be because a friend of mine and I were talking about this recently. There is a certain awkwardness/tension in either:

a. Believing that local church's are the best, but living far from the church you attend.
b. Attending a church that is focused directly on the surrounding neighborhood and yet you live far away in a completely different neighborhood.

That is what I was thinking too when I saw this ;)
