Several years ago, a church in California built a new and impressive building. When one drives down the main street, the imposing structure is straight ahead. However, it is a contemporary building, and to mark it as a church, they put a lighted cross on the facade. As you drive toward the church, the cross is the prominent feature. A neighbor objected. He said the light shone into his home. In reality, it was probably the cross itself that offended him. He went to the city of Huntington Beach, and city officials made the church turn off the light on the cross on the building. However, no one can turn off the light of Christ’s cross!
