Reflections from a United Methodist certified lay speaker and associate member of The Order of St. Luke The Physician (an interdenominational healing order). It needs to be shouted from the highest peaks that God is not out of the miracle business.

Cross versus Crucifix
This is a crucifix.
This is a cross.
What image is more relevant to you?
I see the suffering Christ as more meaningful to me, yet this less bloody, cross, is more inviting. It is a symbol of hope and despair...yet lacking the true meaning of the ultimate sacrifice of Our Lord. Cross or crucifix...what does it speak to you?
