Title: Homeless for the Holidays

Artist’s description: With this piece, I wanted to capture the typical Christmas feast image you see on Christmas cards and magazines, but with a twist. Celebrating Christmas in a world of need isn’t just about giving gifts. Often times we think about buying things for others, when the greatest gift we could give them is our time and the love of Jesus Christ. This is where the homeless character comes into play, because by serving “the least” we are serving God Himself. You never know how important a hot meal and a loving attitude is to someone who has suffered their whole life.

Question: Is there room at your table this Christmas?
