Cross Challenged in Kansas

I try to room with Becky Spencer each time we cross paths at the Colorado Christian Writers Conference and the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference.  (Thank you Marlene for introducing us!)  Becky and I share a LOT in common!  We both:

  • rescue orphans (Becky in Africa and Hope in Asia)
  • adopted children into our homes
  • homeschool
  • write books and articles
  • sing, speak, and write songs

Another writer we met in a Colorado conference, Mike Wolff, dubbed us “Sisters of Thunder!” Salvation

Becky lives in Buhler, Kansas, a hot spot of controversy right now centered on the cross of Jesus.  I’d like to share the post Becky sent me.

Love you, too, sweet sis.

Have you heard what’s happening in our little town of Buhler?  We’re being threatened with a lawsuit because our city seal has a prominent cross on it, along with the words, “Traditional Values.”  It’s been on FOX and other national news channels.  I’ve thought about you so many times because of your passion for the cross and the Savior who died for us there.  Our new t-shirts say, “It’s all about the cross.”  AMEN!

Praying for wisdom for our leaders and for boldness in our people

This is Hope again–I have a question. 
Is the cross meant to disturb us?

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
