Pointing to God

Drawing God

There’s a modern legend of a young girl attending a Sunday school class. After the lesson, the girl sits down and begins furiously drawing a picture. Her teacher approaches and asks what she’s working on.

“I’m drawing a picture of God,” she says.

Charmed (and might I say a little smug), her teacher replies, “But nobody knows what God looks like.”

Sincerely and patiently, the little girl points out, “That’s because I’m not finished yet.”

Story adapted from Peter Gomes, as described by Rev. Michael W Hopkins.
