Homeless Jesus Statue

A sculpture depicting Jesus as a homeless man . . . has been installed outside St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Davidson, N.C.. The piece shows Jesus sleeping on a bench in front of the church.”

Homeless-JesusThe statue is to get people to consider the call to care for the poor. As you do to the least of these you do to me.

I like the concept, as far as art goes. I get the point.

I just wonder how Jesus taking up prime bench seats is helping the homeless.

OK, that was probably uncalled for.

Compared to much Christian art, I’ll take this one.

What thinkest thou?
