Christ -

Description: 3 frames. 1: Jesus takes a selfie, 2: Jesus looks at the picture he took, 3: we see the faces of all kinds of people. This is one of my favorite older prints but people still get it and I send them everywhere. It's similar in theme to my cartoon "Jesus Looks in the Mirror".  The message? We are all connected. We are all one.

Description: Jesus says to his disciples, "I send you out as sheep among wolves." One of them says to another, "I'm going to take that to mean he's sending us out as wolves among sheep."

Then you will learn how to be affirming, inclusive, and a beautiful presence in the world. Seriously...  Want to be happier? Be affirming!
