“The Face of God”, By Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels, February 5, 2023

Theology has much to say about the attributes of God, omnipotence, omniscience, love, justice, and so on, but what about the appearance of God? In the Christian scripture we’re told, “No man hath seen God at any time” (John 1:18). Yet in Genesis, Jacob says, “I have seen God face to face” (Genesis 32:30). When I think about the divine countenance I think of ultimate beauty, or rather, when I’m in the presence of great beauty: art, music, poetry, beautiful people, nature, I feel I am catching a glimpse of something divine.
