“Flat Jesus” was inspired by a children’s book called “Flat Stanley.” In the book, a boy named Stanley becomes flattened and is able to be mailed to different places, having all kinds of exciting adventures.
At St. Thomas’, we see “Flat Jesus” as a way to keep our church family connected as we enter into the Summer season. Color “Flat Jesus” and take him with you. Take a picture of him doing different things (going out to dinner, playing on the beach, being with friends/family). It will be an amazing adventure! It is a great way to remember that Jesus is always with us wherever we go. And it just might start up a conversation with someone about what you are doing and why.
Print your Flat Jesus cut-out here, cut it out and color it. If you bring him to church, we’ll laminate him for you!
