How did you spend Easter Sunday? Well “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt did something pretty special. He and some friends spent the day building, carrying, and setting up a huge metal cross on top of a hill. Pratt shared step-by-step pictures of himself and his friends involved in the project on Instagram.
While certainly a famous public figure, it’s not that well known that Pratt is a man of deep faith. He talked about it in a 2014 interview with Esquire magazine in which he recounted a story of how, as a teenager in Maui, a stranger interrupted his efforts to score some booze with his friends…
“He was like, ‘I stopped because Jesus told me to stop and talk to you. He said to tell you you’re destined for great things.”
Pratt also told ABC News recently how the premature birth of his son Jack in 2012 reaffirmed his faith…
“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it,” Pratt said then. “The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.”
Pratt who describes himself as a “free agent for God” may not always be that public about his faith, but his efforts on Easter speak loudly for his devotion.
