The Homeless Jesus statue at Saint Alban's Church in North Carolina captured our attention. The implications of the statue - that in fact, Jesus was homeless - is galvanizing communities all over the country. We're thinking of our homeless brethren in a way we maybe didn't before. "Have I done enough?" "What would Jesus do?" This renewed dialogue is what the sculptor, inspired by Matthew 25:40, had in mind.
Our "No Place to Rest" Collection evokes an emotional response in the viewer, bringing to the forefront thoughts about social justice and servanthood, and about each person's covenant with the Creator to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God. © Michael Adams - LIcensee Christian Brands
Prayer on back reads:
A Prayer for the Homeless
"Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head." -Matthew 8:20
Dear Heavenly Father, out of love You sent Your Son from the glory of heaven. He did not cling to His exalted position, but emptied Himself to become one of us. At 30, He left the warmth and security of hearth and home to preach the Good News to the poor, heal the sick, and bring salvation to all who would accept Him. Due to hostile authorities, He lived in deserted places, with "nowhere to lay his head." O Jesus, You told us, "Truly I tell you, whatever you do for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you do for me." Help us to reach out and give to those who ask us whatever we can - be it our time, talent, or treasure. We ask this in Your Name and for Your sake. Amen.
