Removing the Cross

I talked to a graphic designer today who is working on a logo for our church. He was a little surprised that we didn’t mind if he incorporated the cross into the design. His comment was most churches today want to avoid having the cross in any of their designs. Have we come to the point where we are so afraid of being offensive that we remove the central point of the Christian faith? I know the cross has been overused in jewelry and has even lost most of it’s meaning to those outside of the church, but shouldn’t we be bold about telling others what Christ has done and can do in their lives. We are not a business, we are a church!! We are the Body of Christ coming together to worship and encourage each other and glorify God and proclaim the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.

Mark 8:38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ash maned when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.
