One of the world’s most loved comic strips is Hagar the Horrible. In one strip we find Hagar kneeling in prayer. “It’s not easy to believe in you God. We never see you. How come you never show yourself? How do we know you even exist…” Next we see

  • a flower springing into life beside Hagar,
  • a volcano erupting in the distance,
  • an eclipse of sun turning the sky black,
  • a star shooting across the stratosphere;
  • a tidal wave rushing over Hagar,
  • lightning flashing,
  • a bush beginning to burn,
  • a stone rolling away from the entrance to a tomb.

Hagar pulls himself from the mud, dripping wet, surrounded by darkness. “OK, OK. I give up! Every time I bring up this subject, all we get is interruptions.”
