Thank you for this- I find the images haunting and they make me think of ways that Christ acted in that we are so incapable of.If not for Him, anyway.The one pictured here is particularly compelling. He takes our burdens, he walks and talks with us, no matter who we are. We have but to turn our heart toward Him.
