Missio Dei is a Latin Christian theological term that can be translated as the “mission of God,” or the “sending of God.” -Wikipedia


Missio Dei Humanus Perfectus

“Create an animal that has never existed before.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

This is the creature known as MISSIO DEI HUMANUS PERFECTUS.  He is at once human and perfect and is sent by God to fulfill the mission of Jesus Christ.  Not much is known about this species, but it is clear that he  relies on the Word of God and Bread of Life for nourishment and is sustained by Living Water.  This must be ingested daily for maximum effectiveness.

The six arms and hands have been an evolutionary process to enable Missio Dei Humanus Perfectus to serve those around him.  His joy comes from sharing love and light, telling the good news of salvation, and serving fish and water in his community.  He stands firmly on the hopeful promise of the kingdom of God.

Note:  The feminine version of Missio Dei Humanus Perfectus is identical to the one pictured.  It is often difficult to see their differences.

If you know one of these creatures you understand how busy they are.  They love to hear “Thank You” but would never expect to be blessed in this way.  It would make them blush from blue to pink if you showed your gratitude!  Thank a MISSIO DEI HUMANUS PERFECTUS today if you happen to know one!
