M= Local artist Mr X painted it and offered it to The Parish for the new millennium, it's either liked or hated here.
V= Wow Jesus looks scary, what the heck happened?
::: giggling :::
M= I guess we see him with the glasses we wear, with our own impression, life or past experiences. Some people think he looks lost or psychotic.
V= I guess we can say that we see him with the mental illness we suffer from.
Me actually laughing out loud, couldn't stop myself.
V= What's next, schizophrenic Mary?
:::barely could breathe because I'm laughing my ass off:::
M= I guess you are right sir, we could say that.

Overheard at The Church today
I'm with visitors, the tour is ending, we are standing near a painting called "Christ of the year 2000", it was painted by a local artist. The piece is at least 10 foot by 6 foot, it's HUGE and ugly. I do not tell the visitors I think it's ugly at first. A nice man asks me about the painting; (M= Me - V= Visitor)
