Listen for the Way – March 3, 2019

Rev. W. Benjamin Boswell: Luke 9:21-36 – 
The cross can heal and hurt; it can be empowering and liberating but also enslaving and oppressive. There is no one way in which the cross can be interpreted . . . the cross places God in the midst of people who are hung, shot, burned, or tortured. ~ James H. Cone 

It may hurt me, but when I took up the cross I recognized its meaning. . . . It is not something that you wear. The cross is something that you bear and ultimately that you die on. ~ Martin Luther King Jr 

The cross is a reminder of how humans have tried throughout history to destroy visions of righting relationships that involve transformation of tradition and transformation of social relations and arrangements sanctioned by the status quo. ~ Delores Williams
