‘Faces of God: Looking beyond the White Male Jesus’ workshop

faces of god

A photo from an enjoyable contemplative workshop last night. The topic was ‘Faces of God: Looking beyond the White Male Jesus.’

We had a total of 11 stations set up around Holy Trinity Cathedral, each depicting images of Christ from various cultural contexts. Towards the end of the workshop, we engaged in discussion around these artworks and how they challenge our often deeply and subconsciously held perceptions of God (and by extension, ourselves and others as bearers of God’s image). We ended with night prayer.
