This was my first cartoon that was birthed out of the Paris attacks in November, 2015.
Christianity and Islam have as many faces as there are individuals with particular understandings of their faith. People are able to interpret sacred texts in the direction of violence or nonviolence, fear or love, inclusion or exlcusion.
This picture illustrates the mutual lament of Christians and Muslims who are devoted to peace while others of the same religions use violence. I have experienced beautiful hospitality, inclusion, generosity from Muslims. We lament together, but we also stand for peace together.
God, forgive us for our violence. Thanks for people of peace.
