US: We all have our cross to bear..
Evansville’s is the West Side Christian Church.
West Side Christian Church has received approval from an Evansville government panel to display 30 decorative crosses Aug. 4-18 on the city’s Downtown riverfront.
“We’re doing it on behalf of the community. We will feel like it will bring people to the riverfront who wouldn’t otherwise come,” church member Roger Lehman told the Board of Public Works, which OK’d the church’s request Thursday.
The crosses, made of polyethylene and about 8 feet tall, will be installed along Riverside Drive between Court and Locust streets. Lehman said they will be decorated by children attending a vacation Bible school camp at West Side Christian Church.
For the record, though, I’m sure Lehman is correct. The crosses will bring new people to the riverfront.
