Here's a video we saw in church today:
We adorn the cross every Resurrection Celebration Day.
It starts out ugly...a wooden cross covered in chicken wire. As the pastor said, the Cross IS offensive, because it reminds us that we can't do it on our own.
We're then invited to bring our flowers and each one represents something in our lives that seems empty, hopeless or dead, and to come in hope, and surrender that to Jesus.
Here are my flowers, the cross being adorned, and the final result.
It is FINISHED!
