Do you have to squeeze to fit in?

"Squeeze In" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward


This cartoon appears in my new book Questions Are The Answer: nakedpastor and the search for understanding. In this book I tell my story of how I tried, for my whole life, to fit into the church. Finally, in 2010, I left the ministry and stopped being a regular member of the church. I still visit. But just visit. Occasionally. Is this your experience? Some insist conformity is necessary for church to work. I don't agree. I've experienced it in local congregations. And I'm experiencing it now online. In my online community The Lasting Supper, there's a wide diversity of people with differing beliefs... an amazing cacophony of nonconformists I've ever met. But we get along great. It is possible.

Did you like this cartoon? Awesome! You can become a patron!
