What Does God Looks Like?


This is a trick question since God has no physical shape that can be reproduced in pixels or paint. It’s also a serious question since we think in images. We can’t help using our imaginations when we focus on God.

So what comes to mind when you think about God? Is it a clear picture you could recognize on paper, or a vague mosaic of metaphors, ideas and experiences?

In one of the most popular TED talks, Sir Ken Robinson tells the story of a little girl in a drawing class:

 She was six and she was at the back, drawing, and the teacher said this little girl hardly ever paid attention, and in this drawing lesson she did. The teacher was fascinated and she went over to her and she said, “What are you drawing?” And the girl said, “I’m drawing a picture of God.” And the teacher said, “But nobody knows what God looks like.” And the girl said, “They will in a minute.”

Don’t you wish you could peek over her shoulder.
