Homeless Jesus finds a place at GC

Homeless Jesus finds a place at GC

Homeless Jesus, the work of Canadian sculptor Timothy P. Schmalz, is visiting General Convention in Salt Lake City.

The sculpture has been installed at churches across the country and across the ocean. The Episcopal Church has welcomed the message and the medium to General Convention, according to the Facebook page of the Episcopal Church. The work will be available to public view today and tomorrow.

The Homeless Jesus statue is available for viewing today, tomorrow, and Thursday in the exhibit space of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, located centrally in the exhibit hall. Information on other rotating experiential exhibits presented by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society throughout the Convention — a UNHCR refugee tent, the first ever public display of remnants of the historic murals from Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port au Prince that were destroyed by the 2010 Haitian earthquake, and a hands-on exhibit of the history and current mission of the United Thank Offering — can be found here:

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
