As a coda to our series on the Theology of the Cross, consider this story about a church in England that removed the outdoor crucifix below because it was “too scary.” Says the story, quoting a museum curator who ended up with the sculpture, “the powerful image portrayed by the figure was that of Christ in pain. ‘That today isn’t an image which a lot of churches want to follow.'” Why is that, in light of our series on the Cross?
