“Christ on the Streets”

In our ministry in the centre of Edinburgh, we try to be alongside people who are on the streets. I love this radical iconography that comes from South America. The teaching of Jesus turns the world upside down and though in places like S. America Christianity came with Empire, when people really got to the core of Jesus’ message they saw its radical implications for liberation and justice.
