The Hands of God in Pictures

The Rev. Noelle York-Simmons, an Episcopal priest, spent her sabbatical photographing people’s hands as they received communion. Our hands, she said, tell our story. And our hands, transformed in receiving the body and blood of Christ, “become the next in a long line of hands that act as the hands of Christ.” York-Simmons photographed Christians’ hands while asking, “What is the most important thing you do with your hands?” Her photos and the subjects’ responses are collected and shared on Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School. Also available are the sermon she preached that initially motivated her interest in the congregations’ hands, and an article in which she reflects on her sabbatical experience. She also maintained a sabbatical blog, on which she chronicled her experience as it unfolded.
