“So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them” (Genesis 1:27).  The authors/compilers of the stories in Genesis imagined God informing others in heaven that he had decided to create humans “according to our likeness”.  To this day, we still assume that we have somehow been made in God’s image, but in what ways and to what extent?  Which of our characteristics reflect God’s image and which do not, and how do we decide?  This talk explores passages in scripture and in the writings of Menno Simons, as well as ideas about “Moral Personhood” (Jim Lanctot and Justin Irving, in “Character and Leadership:  Situating Servant Leadership in a Proposed Virtues Framework“, 2007) and Benjamin Franklin (List of virtues based on Biblical principles, 1726).  [JEK]
