Today is part two of the three-part blogging focus on the really unique crosses I came across at the Hill of Crosses, Lithuania.
Maybe the cause of conflict in the world is us. Maybe it’s our brokenness. Maybe it stems from the frustration we experience because the world doesn’t do things the way we want it to. Maybe it’s our own recognition that we are rather small in the world and we want to change that. Maybe it’s the fear of death.
And yet, hidden away, like a statue in the midst of so many crosses, maybe God is there, watching, waiting for us to stop what we are doing, to stop trying so hard, to stop doing and to start being. Being a child of God that God has made us to be. It doesn’t take extra effort to be this. It doesn’t take extra effort to be this by doing stuff. We just are.
