Seems like a no brainer type of question. We have all seen the cross. We all know that Jesus died on the cross. We know that Jesus died for our sins on the cross. But, really, what in the world does the cross have to do with us everyday.
Questions about the cross are many and various, and many times when we ask the questions we are given some vague, unclear answer. But, we are not alone. Christians throughout the centuries have struggled with many questions about the cross. Many of them driving to the heart of our question, “What does the cross have to do with me?”.
One month from today Lent will begin. These questions about the cross will guide us in our journey. We will be using David Lose’s book “Making Sense of the Cross”. The book is written in a conversation form. Lose has an imaginary conversation with someone like us who has oodles of unanswered questions about the cross. It is a wonderfully written, easy to understand book. You may place your order for the book through the church. Just send us an e-mail. The cost will be 12 dollars. If you decide not to purchase the book, please don’t think you can not dive into our Lenten study. You should be able to follow very well without one, but the book will give you an added depth to your Lenten study.
So, we go forward to learn more about this central symbol in our life as Christians. It is hoped that looking at it from a variety of perspectives will deepen our walk of faith and add to our appreciation of what Christ has done for us. So, come with your questions and see what answers you will receive!
