Heads and Hands

Greetings, brothers and sisters. I guess in this unique portion of the Body of Christ, we have a lot of heads (creators) and hands (artists). Well, glad to be among you.I'm at that time in life that the Beatles sang about in their whimsical song "When I'm 64": When I get older, losing my hair,Many years from now...Except it's not many years from now. It's now.Been drawing pictures for about 61 of these 64 years, and comics and cartooning has been a big part of that, both professionally and for…See More

"God bless y'all, brothers and sisters. Anyone here who was involved in comics fandom in those Golden Years of the 60s and early 70s?"

My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I've been a believer since I was a little boy. My parents and my grandparents were believers. Jesus has always been my hero, and his life and words have been my guide in life. His death and resurrection are my salvation. Heaven is my eternal home, for as my great-grandfather (6x) Roger Williams (founder of Rhode Island) once wrote: "Life is brief minute. Eternity follows."

My brief minute on this planet has lasted for 64 years so far, and have seen our society change radically in those years. Jesus has helped me through many a challenge and heartache (some brought on by my own sin and foolishness), and his Church (my brothers and sisters in Christ) has been a constant source of encouragement. The Church is also a constant source of grief, for too many of us do not follow Jesus as we ought. I have been involved in Christian service and ministry within several local churches through the years, as a teacher, preacher and worship leader. Over the past 8 years, I have pastored a small historic congregation in Lancaster County, PA.

I am married (40 years in 2018), with five grown children and four grandchildren. The Lord has helped us in married and family life, as the challenges today are multiplied by a society in open rebellion against God... and a culture increasingly shaped by the media and the influence of digital technology.

Welcome to the CCAS.  Thank you so much for sharing in both your testimony and your "Heads and Hands" post.  I am two years behind you at 62 and I am amazed at the grace and mercy of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Congratulations on 40 years of marriage, that is a blessing.  May gracious Savior continue to bless you, your family, and the works of your hand and in the increasing awareness of His eternal love.
