THE CHURCH OF THE LIGHTED CROSS For over 2000 years, the cross has been the quintessential symbol of the Christian Church. Adorning altars, stained glass windows, and steeples in churches around the world, the cross has served as a reminder of the One who hung upon it as the Lamb of God that once and for all took away the sin of the world. The cross forever brings to mind the person and work of Jesus Christ, and brings forgiveness, peace, and joy to those who trust in the crucified and risen Savior. For decades, a lighted cross shone at the top of the former Saints Peter & Paul Lutheran Church building, now Grace Lutheran Church, located right across the street from Madison Park in Lakewood. But then, the light went out, and for about 10 to 15 years, the cross could not be seen during the nighttime hours. However, thanks to a generous donation by a Lakewood resident who lives right by the church, as well as donations from the members of Grace Lutheran Church, the cross shines once again. The neighbor told our church secretary that when she first moved to Lakewood, she knew she was home when she saw the lighted cross. It can be seen from as far away as I-90 and from the neighborhoods along the Madison Avenue corridor. Lakewood residents are invited to take note of the cross as it shines daily from approximately 8 PM to 8 AM. May the lighted cross be a source of hope and joy to you!
