Alan writes - A friend sent me a copy of the following cartoon from Christianity Today. It sublimely raises a whole lot of questions about the maturation of faith and faith stages. I would be intrigued by people’s perception of it.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The evolution of a worshipper:
I don't know that I'd generalize to faith stages or a path of maturity, but I can relate to the cartoon based on my own experience. When the pure emotionalism of what passes for worship these days runs out, there is something very attractive about liturgy and the idea of worshiping the way generations of Christians have worshiped. I'm not sure I get the goatee/ipod figure (besides the gender issues that ensue) -- maybe the isolation when you realize you're out of sync with your old friends/church?

Simplistic, linear and irrelevant?

My comment is very probably simplistic, linear and irrelevant - many of my thoughts are. ;-)
Not at all aimed at the cartoon, I love Dave Walker's stuff - http://www.cartoonchurch.com/
Really, I was poking at the comment that it might have anything to do with maturation or stages of faith...
This is more my style! http://benedson.blogs.com/benedson/2008/02/the-evolution-o.html

Interesting. I would say it's gone in very much the opposite direction for me.

Go Nathan Rice! You nailed it, (no religious pun intended). We all move daily from teary-eyed amazement at Christ to wondering if He is real at all. Fortunately we have the Word and the Spirit to bring us back to faith.
