Last Friday, I watched the Greenwood Christmas parade at the intersection of Grand Boulevard and Claiborne Avenue. In that spot I saw a beautiful scene of diversity enjoying the event together — blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanics. What really put a lump in my throat was that everyone was happy. Every tribe, nation and tongue in Greenwood were together, expressing joy in that wonderful atmosphere. It was a picture of what heaven will be like. The Lord clearly said to me, “These are all my children. I love them so much that I died for them. Make sure they know that.”
The Delta Cross (www.deltacross.org) is an excellent way to do just that. While we may not ever get the opportunity to have a citywide church service with such diverse participation, everyone will see The Cross. And it will undoubtedly cause everyone who sees it to ask themselves what it is, what it means, and why it is there.
We have a remarkable opportunity to advance His kingdom in our community with this endeavor. I hope that every follower of Christ in our community recognizes this opportunity and participates in this project.
