I knew this would happen, suddenly I am afraid to write anything because people might actually be reading it. I am pathetic, I fear the very thing I was wanting. *sigh* Please bear with me as I fight through this.
In desperation I turn to the photo file. Today for your viewing pleasure ...
One of these crosses is supposed to remind us of the death and ressurection of Jesus. The funny thing is, the power pole probably looks more like the cross of Jesus than the cross on the Church.
I begin to wonder, is it even right to make the cross beautiful? The cross is the supreme moment of humility, maybe "beautiful cross" is an oxymoron?
Maybe a clean and beautiful cross is safer than the real one, and we use the beauty to protect ourselves from what it would mean to be a people set free on an bloodstained, rough hewn cross.
