John Fischer, On a Hill Too Far Away: tells about a church in Old Greenwich, CT which has a

ten-foot cross located not on a wall or suspended from the ceiling or even on the steeple of the

building. This cross is bolted firmly in front of the platform not three feet from where the

preacher preaches.

Fischer also talks about this cross in an on-line devotional: “When you stand up behind the

podium to speak, the horizontal crossbar is three feet in front of your nose. When I closed my eyes

to sleep on the night I spoke there, the cross was somehow stamped on my eyelids, much like you

feel a hat on your head, long after you have removed it.”
