Strata: Cartoon Caption Contest

BAR July/August 2016 cover

“Thanks, Dad. I love you, too. Hand me the rod, so I can show you how much.”

—Edward Dobberstein, Hayesville, North Carolina

Thank you to all those who submitted caption entries for our March/April 2016 cartoon, based on Proverbs 13:24:

“Those who spare the rod hate their children, but those who love them are diligent to discipline them.”

We are pleased to congratulate Edward Dobberstein of Hayesville, North Carolina, who wrote the winning caption, and our runners-up:

“Dad, don’t you remember that Psalm 23 says ‘thy rod’ should ‘COMFORT’ me?”

—Karl Larew, New Park, Pennsylvania

“Father, I promise to let you read BAR first next time!”

—Paul Pollard, Searcy, Arizona
