THAT CROSS ALONE

Clarence Jordan, author of the "Cotton Patch" New Testament translation, and founder of the interracial Koinonia farm in Americus, Georgia, was getting a red-carpet tour of another minister's church. With pride the minister pointed to the rich, imported furnishings and luxurious decorations. As they stepped outside, darkness was falling, and a spotlight shone on a huge cross atop the steeple. With a satisfied smile the preacher exclaimed, "That cross alone cost us ten thousand dollars."

"You got cheated," said Jordan. "Times were when Christians could get them for free."
