Now THAT is a Processional Cross!!

So beautful and unique is the processional cross at Good Shepherd that it needs it's own post! This cross was made especially for the congregation by a wonderfully talented Lutheran artist in Grand Rapids. It has two sides, our crucified Lord with the four Evangelists on one side and Christ, our Good Shepherd with various symbols on the other side.

This is the Church's emblem, the chi and rho presented as a shepherds staff and the alpha and omega.

I know! I was so amazed when I saw it. A Lutheran artist from the Grand Rapids area made it especially for my congregation. This is a man I will have to get to know better!
