Christ plays in ten thousand places

It’s a week early to be thinking about Easter, but I created this poster for our campus ministry to use during the Easter season, and thought I’d share it now.  I’m using the faces of friends and loved ones in these images, sometimes, as in this one, standing in for the figure of Christ.  But I think that Gerard Manley Hopkins gives me permission, in these last lines from “As Kingfishers Catch Fire”:

I say more: the just man justices;
Keeps grace; that keeps all his goings graces;
Acts in God’s eye what in God’s eye he is –
Christ.  For Christ plays in ten thousand places,
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his
To the Father through the features of men’s faces.

Easter
