Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Moses told the people that in him they had gotten just what they'd asked for when they had found the Lord's voice too frightening - a prophet to speak to them His words. And they began to realize that if it had not been only the voice of God that they found intimidating but that His words, even in the mouth of His prophet, challenged them in ways they would rather have avoided.

                            Who in your life speaks God's words to you?
                                       Have you the courage to listen?
