Presbyterian Church Features "Heads of Christ Room"

By Winston Skinner
GEORGIA - Jekyll Island has its share of tourist attractions – the miles of beaches, the Millionaire's Village, the remaining tabby walls of the colonial Horton House. Then there is the huge collection of images of Jesus. The room at Jekyll Presbyterian Community Church is not included in tourism brochures, but the paintings, carvings and prints tell a story of how Christ has been viewed by artists from many different eras and cultures. There are more than 100 different pieces in the Heads of Christ room at Jekyll Presbyterian. The room also includes a comfortable sofa and some books with art featuring images of Christ -- forming a fine place for contemplation and prayer. [link]
