Picture of Jesus

Recently I was going through a bunch of old Church lesson material and I ran across some “wallet size” pictures of Jesus. They are reproductions of Warner Sallman’s Head of Christ. I am sure you have seen the picture somewhere before.

I kept a copy of the little picture I found, not because it reminds me of Jesus, but because of a memory from college. I was attending the ordination of a college friend and roommate Lance Peterson in a small Church in eastern Kansas. As a group of us walked through an area leading to the fellowship hall we looked up to see this picture. Without hesitation Lance’s brother-in-law Brain said, “Hey, they have Jesus’ senior picture.”

I have never forgot that moment and every time I look at the picture I smile. I still think it was very funny, but maybe it is just me:)
