A Cross for a Throne

Rev. Cattenhead’s sermon yesterday reminded us that “the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

The very idea that we can name the darkest day our faith has known “Good Friday” tells us just how our faith is world-upending.

It is the strange and hopeful teaching of followers of Christ that the King of kings would accept a cross for a throne because there he could join the lowest, endure the worst, and offer the best - forgiveness, mercy, relationship, and a promise to join him in Paradise.
