'Homeless Jesus' continues to inspire

From Christian Today-

Timothy Schmalz's "Homeless Jesus" statue is in the spotlight once again after a Detroit pastor offered to place the artwork in front of his church.

Schmalz hopes to have a Homeless Jesus in every city, and sees it as a powerful inspiration.

"It's putting it really within the grasp of everyone," he told the Detroit Free Press on Sunday. "Most representations of Jesus are unattainable. But it's a sculpture you can merge with, something you can experience."

The 7-foot-long bronze statue features a man sleeping on a bench - his face covered with a blanket. The figure is identifiable as Jesus because of the wounds on his feet.
