Time for a Great Quote: George MacLeod on the Cross

03 Aug

“I simply argue that the cross be raised again at the Screen Shot 2016-07-17 at 6.08.07 AMcenter of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church. I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves; on the town garbage heap; at a crossroad so cosmopolitan that they had to write his title in Hebrew and in Latin and in Greek . . . at the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble. Because that is where he died. And that is what he died about. And that is where churchmen ought to be, and what churchmen should be about.”   (George MacLeod)
