Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Lighten up! Get out of your own narrow mindset and look at things from another's perspective. Jesus challenges the scribes to rejoice that former outcasts are now welcome into community rather that grouse because this threatened their perceptions of their own status and value. Jesus tells them that theirs was not the "God'seye" view. How does your perspective on community stack up with His? James 2:14-16

What is your faith worth?
