Camouflaged Cross

http://db.tt/WR13GrZ5

I was walking to a meeting this morning when I walked pass a truck covered with the above  camouflaged crosses. (I hope the link works) I immediately thought how powerful a symbol it is of problems so many churches face. Its a symbol of how we try to hide Jesus, at least how we try to hide Jesus’ cross. 

I’m reminded of Psalm 50 where God decries empty sacrifices of bulls. It reminds me of God’s continual call for justice, equality, righteousness, and mercy.  It reminds me of Luke 14:13ff: But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind.
