Surprising Places To See Jesus

Doug Marlette (1949-2007) was a gifted political cartoonist who worked for the Atlanta Constitution for many years.

 At one point in his career, he ran a powerful cartoon that has stuck with me for almost two decades.  The image in the cartoon was one of a soup kitchen for the homeless during a  holiday season.  In the soup kitchen, one could see the image of Jesus.  What was astounding about this picture was what Jesus was doing.  We’d probably expect to see Jesus as the powerful host, serving the homeless.  In Marlette’s picture, however, Jesus was not serving the homeless — he was one of the homeless. 

What are some of the surprising places where you have seen Jesus?
