Holy Cross Day

The President of our sister synod, The Lutheran Church-Canada, shares some words of wisdom:

I remember the days of my youth when I felt so strongly opposed to a crucifix on that familiar ground that it was somehow “Roman Catholic”. One day a wise, gentle old Estonian pastor talked with me about it on the way home from our circuit meeting. “Don’t ever forget,” he observed, “it’s not the cross that saved you, but rather the One Who hung on the cross.” Things became clearer to me in that moment. Ever since then, I’ve had a crucifix on the wall … at home, in my office, and in the rooms where I taught . . . to try to remind myself and others of my Saviour Jesus.
