The Faces of Christ – by Sarah Petite



The Faces of Christ are a version of images suggested and used with the Godly Play story method. On Good Friday 2018, "The Faces of Christ" was a modified Godly Play session and part of the worship that day. The "faces" images were created by Sarah Petite.

recognizable events in Jesus' ministry, no prompting needed

Here's what Sarah had to say about her images:

"I'd like to thank Cheryl Jacobs for taking a chance on me and asking me to provide these eight paintings for Godly Play! They were fun and very fulfilling to work on. I wanted to make them real 'action shots' - recognizable events in Jesus' ministry, no prompting needed. Just for one example, I especially like the scene of the young Jesus visiting the Temple, and astonishing a rather somber-looking priest with his learning and understanding. I hope the young people in Godly Play are enlightened and inspired by them!"
