The church I go to is quite small, but once a year, we let our pastor go on vacation. When he does, we all do our best to fill in for him. Somebody grabs a guitar, somebody else a Bible and attempts to say something edifying. Last week was my turn. What I do is make a comic ahead of time. I make each panel a slide in a Powerpoint program. Then I tell the story with the pictures and make comments along the way. This story is about many things: zeal for God, discouragement, burnout, and the Call of God on an individual's life. I believe God has a job for each one of us. We do what we can for others and for Him and that's responding to that call. He is the ultimate artist, who has made a separate design for each one of us.
As in the story of Gideon I drew, this Bible story refers to The Angel of the Lord appearing. Many Bible scholars believe this is a pre-incarnate visitation of Jesus.
That's all that is done so far. I will add more to it next week.
