365.25 - Day 11

365.25 - Day 11
Originally uploaded by whatnext
Some folks from my wife's church contributed work to a community arts exhibition in downtown Corpus Christi. This collage of self-portraits reminded me of the character of the church.

We're all over the map, to be sure.

A few months ago, I heard a lecture by Bishop William Willimon (North Alabama Conference of the United Methodists). During the course of the lecture, he reminded those present, mostly seminary professors, administrators, students, and pastors, that, "The church needs to be prepared to deal with whomever Jesus Christ drags through the door."

"Whomever" may include one or more of the individuals represented on this wall.

Perhaps it'll be Pablo? Or Hannah? Basil? Roger? Mallory? Wallis?
