Advent Calendar Door #11 – Jesus is…human

Posted: December 11, 2015 by leighannegreenwood in Uncategorized

Today’s reflection is inspired by another of Si Smith’s fantastic drawings, this time from his Lent series.


I’m not sure if Jesus has finally cracked from all the fasting, or if he is simply enjoying a moment of childish pleasure, but there is something utterly and delightfully human about this image, and I can’t look at it without smiling.

This is God-with-us. This is God-as-one-of-us. And it is glorious.
