Jesus was not crucified between two candles

“I simply argue that the cross be raised again at the centre of the market place as well as on the steeples of the church. I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves; on the town garbage heap; at a crossroad so cosmopolitan that they had to write his title in Latin, Hebrew and Greek; at the kind of place where cynics talk smut, thieves curse and soldiers gamble; because that’s where He died; and that is what He died about. And that is where church men and women should be; and what church men and women should be about.”

Geoge McLeod from the latest City Mission newsletter.

I have been hanging out a bit lately with the guys from City Mission.  I really love their heart for discipleship and their commitment for going to the hard places.  And it does not hurt that they are based some ten minutes walk from my house.  Check out some more about them here or sign up for their newsletter here.
