Modeled after the beloved children’s book Flat Stanley, Flat Jesus is a fun way to take Jesus along with you on your travels, strike up conversation with others, remember that Jesus’ is in the face of both friend and stranger, and that—whether we are close or apart—we need and belong to one another.
