It's a strange thing to have to draw or paint the face of God the Father, or Jesus, or even the Holy Spirit. In painting Jesus, I used to get worried about the prospect of getting an acceptable appearance. The only image reference the we have is a Roman coin around AD. 500 where there's a guy who is round faced and curly-haired is etched on a coin. Some people cling to the Isaiah reference: Is. 53:2 "He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him." However while picturing our Savior, I prefer to consider Luk 2:40: " And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him." I've chosen a fairly sturdy look for his character.

Missio Christi is a study By Britt Merrick pastor of Reality Carpinteria of the missional life of Christ in the Gospels. We see how Christ loved people, challenged people, touched people, cared for people, confronted people, and hung out with people. We are then asked how we, the church, can do the same and thus experience Missio Christi in and through us, then to the world around us. A painting was created for each of the sermons or sermon series within the Missio Christi series.
