Here's a very thoughtful and appreciated email I received this morning in response to the ongoing poll-
I read your announcement about changing Faithmouse
with some trepidation, especially with regard to
posting on the sites that have forums on your work.
Our Lord is said to have led captivity captive, and I
applaud your call to shed light in dark places, both
to strengthen the weak and to bear witness to the
proud. I am led to intercede for you in prayer and
the Holy Spirit.
I will evidently need to view Faithmouse with
discretion now; her deshabille in Phat was striking,
and definitely NSFW. Having her character show the
vulnerability of being conflicted by her burden and
past actions will no doubt provide considerable ground
for artistic expression.
Producing "apolitical" work will be a stretch; since
you are at the same time proposing to introduce
liberal views. All media could use a rest from the
well-trodden Chimpy meme. *please*
Christ himself did not espouse political partisanship,
but he did exhort righteousness, civic responsibility,
public mercy, and integrity; things that both of the
leading parties could take to heart.
Let me urge you to be strong, to keep your message
pure and true, and to continue to seek the Lord's
leading in your life and the use of your creative
Ephesians 6:10; 1 Peter 2:1-3; John 4:14; James 3:11;
Proverbs 5:15; Matthew 12:34-37; 2 Peter 1:16
Yours in Christ-

The Da Vinci Load, In Progress
I drew Tom directly from his T.V. appearance last night on David Letterman.
