My drawing above was inspired by David Hayward’s recent post called “Unanswered Prayer“. David’s version, below, illustrates a common experience of many who have left Christianity and probably of most people who still call themselves “Christian”.
My version shows some of what distracts a person from noticing that there is nothing in the “Answered Prayer” plate.
David Hayward is a former pastor of a Christian church whose superb blog, nakedpastor, is creatively subtitled, “graffiti artist on the walls of religion”. Please do visit his site, it is fantastic. Davids honesty, openness and creativity are incredibly refreshing — and he knows his stuff!
My daughter is a budding artist and we often sit around and discuss David’s drawings. This is the closest my daughter ever gets to Sunday School!
