We have been challenging ourselves to consider the Cross. We hadn’t realised how controversial this might be especially since some of us had been brought up with the story.
If we are honest, it sort of mixes in with the Christmas story, Santa and the Easter Bunny. We certainly sing about it with passion and know its benefits but have we explored its depths and are we accepting a true revelation? Has the story maybe become ineffective in our lives or even too painful to think too much about?
Sometimes we need to consider other people’s understanding but in our exploration we discovered a treasury of experiences amongst us each building together to a precious revelation.
Here is someone’s take that might stir us to reconsider and deepen our understanding even if we don’t accept his theory.
