Yes. So much Yes. (Homeless Jesus)

Standard

Here you can read about the appearance of a Jesus the Homeless statue and how that appearance is upsetting some well-to-do believers.

Rev. David Buck sits next to the Jesus the Homeless statue that was installed in front of his church, St. Alban's Episcopal, in Davidscon, N.C.

For my own part, I welcome the statue. Even as I was penning No Lasting Burial — in which the appearance of a homeless Yeshua rocks a small Galilee fishing town to its core — this sculptor was working on an even more direct, blunt, and moving portrayal of the man who walked the length and breadth of a bitterly divided land to remind its people that it is in caring “for the least of these” that we care for God, and that what keeps us from the peace we long for is our “hardness of heart.”

I am moved.
