Sermon Illustrations

I simply argue that the cross be raised again

at the center of the market place

as well as the steeple of the church,

I am recovering the claim that

Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles

but on a cross between two thieves;

on a town garbage heap;

at a crossroad of politics so cosmopolitan that they had to write His title

in Hebrew and in latin and in Greek...

and at the kind of place where cynics talk smut,

and thieves curse and soldiers gamble.

Because that is where He died, and that is what He died about

and that is where Christ’s followers ought to be,

and what church people ought to be about
