Jesus Laughing – Poverty Transformed

Posted By Chris Giovagnoni On July 16, 2009 @ 1:26 am In Children in Poverty,Employees and Culture | 10 Comments

Jesus laughing The first time I ever saw this picture of Jesus laughing [3], I was transfixed.

There’s life in it.

And even now, I still respond to His expressive joy. I laugh. He laughs. He knows how I feel!

This idea that Jesus knows us isn’t just a concept; it’s actually for real (Whoa!), which isn’t quite how I feel when I see a “typical” portrait of Jesus, the kind that defines the image I carry with me when I imagine or speak with Christ.

But now, after two years @compassion (Happy anniversary to me today.), I see Jesus a lot differently. And I see poverty differently.

This is poverty transformed. Do you see the similarities?
