Buddies Alex Tadros and Scott Diehl spent Memorial Day weekend painting the interior of Tadros’ restaurant, the Martins Creek Inn. Diehl used a sponge technique to give the walls a nice, soft look with a light brown shade far more warm and inviting than the old gray.
A job well done. But it wasn’t until Tadros invited a couple of friends over to see the paint job that anyone realized the Lower Mount Bethel Township eatery suddenly had a new attraction: an image on the dining room wall that looks very much like the classic picture of a bearded, long-haired Jesus.
“One of [my friends] said, ‘You have something on the wall,’” Tadros recounted. “The other one says, ‘It looks like Jesus.’”
You’ve undoubtedly heard these stories before: Jesus in a grilled cheese sandwich, Jesus in a potato chip, Jesus in a tree stump. The Virgin Mary also makes plenty of unexpected appearances. She showed up on a garage door in the Schuylkill County community of Minersville a few years back.
