Sunday Spiritual - White Crosses

From an email

When driving 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.
Two 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 beginnings.   At 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 yards today.
After 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. 
We have an administration that says, "We are not a 

Christian nation." 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, 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. 

God has richly blessed America, but America is falling short 

of returning thanks for it, we can help to change that.

Will you forward this to all your friends, and place a cross in your yard or garden?
"In GOD We Trust"


I was asked to forward to friends.
I have shared it here so you can shareit too.

Have a blessed Sunday!
