The Cross and the Kingdom (2016-06-05)

The cross is a universal Christian symbol.  One view of it is that the horizontal bar represents earthy life, the nitty-gritty of everyday experience, and the vertical bar represents the spiritual realm, or "Kingdom," as Jesus put it.  Jesus was at the intersection of the horizontal and vertical lines, teaching us how to live on the earth and telling us that we're part of something greater, something eternal. We are having an earthly experience, but we are spiritual beings.
