Church without the Cross?

I have no intentions of wasting words rehashing what's already been said by Be Strong in the Grace. But since I think it's so aptly put, I wanted you to read it yourselves in her latest post.

Church is not about coffee, comfort, catchy music, or feeling better about yourself. It's about God-come-down-to-us and God-bringing-us-up in the incarnation, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. And that means the cross, the fulcrum upon which history pivots. So what are churches doing without crosses these days? Do we celebrate the rock band on stage more Christ? Isn't that what it looks like when the front of the church is a stage without a cross?

But there is always mercy.
