everyone who is a Christian. If Christians don’t begin to take a stand
together we won’t be standing at all. The cross in the front yard is a good
driving to, from, and through Frankenmuth, Michigan, I’m always
intrigued with the many small simple crosses in the front yards
of the homes we pass by. Those crosses are a statement of
support for Frankenmuth’s Christian foundation.
years ago an atheist living there complained about two crosses
on a bridge in town. He requested that they be
removed and the town removed them. He then decided that,
since he was so successful with that, the city shield should
also be changed since it had on it, along with other symbols, a
heart with a cross inside signifying the city’s Lutheran
that point, the residents decided they had had enough.
Hundreds of residents made their opinions known by placing small
crosses in their front yards. Seeing this quiet but
powerful statement from the community, the man removed his
complaint. Those simple crosses remain in those front
passing those crosses for two years, it finally hit me that a
small cross in millions of front yards across our country could
provide a powerful and inspiring message for all Americans
passing them every day. I think it might be time to take
this idea across America.
have an administration that says "we are not a Christian nation"
and everywhere you look the ACLU and others are trying to remove
from our history and current lives any reference to God, prayer,
or the fact that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian
principles. Our administration can’t bring themselves to
talk about "radical Muslims or Islamic terrorists" for fear of
offending them, but they can talk about Americans
"clinging to their guns and their religion", or insinuate that
our own military troops coming home from service overseas might
turn into terrorists. The majority of Americans are
Christians, why are we letting this happen to us?
time to stand up and make a statement…a small, quiet, but
powerful statement. If you agree, place a small white
cross in your front yard or garden for all to see that they are
not alone. It would be a beautiful thing to see crosses
all across America.
has richly blessed America but America is falling short of
returning thanks for it…we can help to change
