Church Art

October 21, 2008


It’s not what you think. No beautiful stained glass windows or banners.

At our church we have prayer request sheets in each pew, and every Sunday I am delighted by the crazy drawings some kid has drawn on the back. I’ve wanted to take pictures of them for a long time, and last Sunday I happened to have my camera phone. (Which happens to have been returned. Don’t tell us cellular guy.) So, the picture quality leaves something to be desired.

Wouldn’t a gallery of these be hilarious?

Explosion or monster on its side?


Riding a rocket or guitar?

What's that movie with the guy riding the torpedo?

I’m not sure what this is, but it doesn’t look too good for that one guy.

    For that first picture, I’m going to go with…

    Dangerous Fruit Loop


  2. Brad Said on:

    That last one reminds me of Daniel’s church drawings: full of love and violence.

    I think it’s a church. The guy on the steeple has pushed over the cross, which is now lying on its side farther down. What isn’t clear is whether it is three stickmen going down the side of the church, or one man whose progress down the roof is shown in three stages.

      I think the ones on the left are three stages and the ones on the front are two other guys trying to get up.

    I know the background is a pew. Did you take these DURING church????


  4. Peggy Said on:

    Hey,”some kid” apparently reads these sites…that 1st picture is definately an excellent portrayal of Brad with his face under the Xlerator….

    The first picture is the whole “ablaze” thing going up in a big kablooey. The second picture is Elijah’s chariot. The last picture is somebody sliding down the church roof.

    I used to love drawing on things at church…unfortunately back then they called it graffiti!

      (Don’t tell my parents, but the pews in my childhood church were made of very soft wood, and I liked to dig omy fingernails in the grain and make little ditches. Just on the edges, though. Nobody noticed if I just did the edges.)

    So, YOU were the one defacing God’s furniture?
