Here are some of my cartoons that I did for the Lent season for my church. Though I don't really live up to high Christian ideas, I do still believe in Jesus and God. I'm glad to have found a church that allows me to publish my cartoons in their bulletin, and has let me worship with them. I'm still trying to figure out what I still believe, but I'm grateful that the Episcopal Church has been patient with me in listening to my questions and giving me space to search. This Lent my mom gave me a necklace with a cross and the medals of St. Benedict and St. Gabriel. It was a nice gift that I wear all the time now.
When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.”
