>Happy Birthday, Snoopy and Gang

>Fifty-nine years ago the first “Peanuts” comic was published. Here it is:

I think there is some great “theology” portrayed in many of the strips. In fact a somewhat controversial book titled “The Gospel According to Snoopy” was floating around decades ago.

One of my favorite cartoons was Linus and Charlie arguing about the Great Pumpkin. Charlie asks Linus how he can believe in such a thing; Linus retorts that when Charlies stops believing in Santa Claus, Linus will give up on the Great Pumpkin. Charlie closes the strip by saying, “We are obviously separated by denominational differences.”

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
