I survey the wondrous cross
on which the prince of glory died..."
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
Words by Isaac Watts, ELW page 803
Then Jesus told his disciples, "If
any want to become my
followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross
and follow me." Matthew 16:24 NRSV
cross - our symbol for that wonderful, sacrificial gift that God
gave to us
the death of His Son to assure our salvation, as well as the
constant reminder to us of what we have to do to follow Him. We
have many crosses
throughout Trinity to remind us of the gift and the
responsibility - from the very obvious ones - the steeple cross,
the Christus Rex in the nave, the Fellowship Hall cross - to the
less obvious - the crosses in the doors to the nave and chapel,
the small brass crosses on the ends of four pews in the nave,
the concrete cross from the old education building. In fact
there are crosses or crucifixes in virtually every room in the
of the crosses are wonderful works of art in their own rights,
have unique stories to tell, or they serve some specific
purpose, or they may just be meaningful to you.
