Why Are We Called The Crossing?Our name is meant to invoke the image of an old sailing ship on a journey to the New World. The threat of storms, unfamiliar waters, and many other dangers lay ahead. A successful crossing not only demanded a sea-worthy ship, necessary supplies, and an able crew, but also a reliable method to navigate the way.
We think life is a lot like that. It’s a spiritual journey, full of hope as well as difficulty. Sometimes we hit storms that threaten to blow us off course. But like the sailing ships of old, when we’re able to navigate correctly, we’ll safely reach our destination.
What we need is a sure beacon—a light from God to show us the way. For the Israelites, it was a pillar of fire that led them across the desert. For the Magi, it was a bright star over Bethlehem. For our journey, it’s the glorious light of the gospel that illumines the course God has marked out for us.
At The Crossing, we’re making life’s journey—together.
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
- C.S. Lewis
