Narrative Lectionary

The NL will be working through 2 Peter in the month of July. This is one of the few books for which I have never create a visual.

Join me every Monday at 4:00pm Central Time for a live Bible study on Zoom.

These sessions include:

  • a presentation of the visual resources for the lectionary texts for the week,
  • live discussion around the texts,
  • previews and behind-the-scenes peeks at what is happening at A Cartoonist’s Guide to the Bible

The video of the session remains available on the network to view at any time, in case you can’t make it for the live session.

This is a part of the Cartoonist’s Bible Network. I’d love to have you join us.

I’m constantly experimenting with different ways to work through new media to engage people in visual theology and spiritual formation. Here is my latest experiment. I’d love for you to try it out with me.

Join me on Thursdays at 2:00pm CST for a livestream art session on YouTube. I’m drawing through the book of Acts in real time.
