“We should have borrowed Jacob’s Ladder for this job!”

—Daniel Rys, Cape Coral, Florida

Thank you to all those who submitted caption entries for our Winter 2022 cartoon (left), based on Joshua 4:8: “The Israelites did as Joshua commanded. They took up twelve stones out of the middle of the Jordan, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, as the Lord had told Joshua, carried them over with them to the place where they camped, and laid them down there.” We are pleased to congratulate Daniel Rys of Cape Coral, Florida, who wrote the winning caption, and our runners-up:


“We may need more than gravity to hold these tribes together!”

—Jim Talens, Boynton Beach, Florida

“Forget the milk and honey. Find me some Super Glue!”

—Carol Radford, Saint Clair, Missouri


“Jenga on the Jordan.”

“No, stop! It’s not in alphabetical order!”
