“I simply argue that the cross should be raised at the center of the market place as well as on 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 the towns garbage heap; at a crossroad so cosmopolitan, they had to write His title in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.

At the kind of place where cynics talk smut, thieves curse, and soldiers gamble. Because that is where he died. And that is what he died for. And that is what he died about.

That is where church-men ought to be, and what church-men ought to be about.”
