Topics for consideration could include:
- The nature of leaving: quickly, quietly etc
- Whether this juxtaposition of signs would be appropriate in an ecclesiastical setting
- Whether the little man would fit through the door and why he has no feet

Things you can do
Topics for consideration could include:
I’m on a bit of a holiday at the moment. I’m still logging onto the internet, the difference being that I have to balance the small laptop on top of a wardrobe to get an internet signal whilst straining on tiptoe to see it, rather than just sitting at my desk in comfort. Alternatively I can go to a hotspot internet location serving not especially good £2.50 coffee.
There’s nothing particularly interesting or amusing about this holiday snap, but it is my custom to share a holiday picture or two with any readers who are still reading. Feel free to share any thoughts about the lessons that we can all learn from this sign.
I’ve been having some good ‘Anglican goings-on’ times at General Synod in London over the last couple of days. I’ve been blogging and posting a few cartoons on my Church Times blog and Twittering every now and then. Hopefully a couple more cartoons will follow tomorrow.
Do say hello if you’re there and see me around. I can be contacted via the usual mobile number or CartoonChurch number, 07806 334077.
These are the winners of the small and well thought-out competition I ran on Thursday. In no particular order:
Comment 22, Duane, with ‘“Things to ‘Be’ in church” eg. Cleaner/Treasurer/Gardener/Preacher/Nice old lady/Unruly child/Pious/FakePious/Disruptive/Latecomer/Snorer/Singer/Giver/Storyteller/Newsletter writer etc ‘. Definite calendar potential.
Comment 29, rory, with ‘How to tell that you’re …a lay preacher …on the flower roster …new in the parish …a church warden‘. Similar idea but with a great heading, “How to tell that you’re…”. These first two may well end up being ‘the’ idea.
Comment 23, Aaron, with ‘The major feast or fast for each month‘. A bit similar to 2008, but it sparked off some good ideas for a future calendar.
Comment 13, Fat Roland, with the bizarre and intriguing ‘Twelve pet services‘, but also ‘A basic guide to theology, Dave Walker style‘, which I would love to do if I could be clever enough to think up the content, but probably not this time.
Finally, Comment 18, Simon, with ‘What the clergy keep hidden in the secret pockets of a cassock‘ – not an idea for a calendar perhaps, but one I will certainly use for an individual cartoon.
I’ll contact these 5 people for their addresses after I’ve been to the supermarket and done my chores. In the meantime a huge thank you to everyone who has entered – there are lots of other ideas there which I may well use even if they aren’t ideas for entire calendars.
As a thank you to those who posted on the thread at any point up until now but didn’t win – I’ll send you a few postcards if you e-mail a postal address to info (at) cartoonchurch.com with the heading ‘February 09 competition’. Thank you!

Canterbury Press have the 2009 Dave Walker calendar on sale for £3.
Owing to incompetence I have a small stock of them left over myself, so here’s a little competition: I’ll send 5 2009 calendars to the 5 people who post the best ideas for next year’s (2010) calendar in the comments section of this blog post today. Competition closes at midnight tonight UK time. I’ll send prizes anywhere in the world.
Last year’s was ‘things to take to church’, the year before was ‘things to do in your church’. I haven’t got any ideas for next year’s yet, and the deadline is looming really rather rapidly.
Disclaimers: If you post an idea I might use it without giving you any money or much in the way of thanks. I might also not use ideas even if they are good. No cash alternative to the prize, though I can send you an envelope with some of the contents of my recycling box if you’d prefer. I might change the rules if I feel like it.
