Welcome to Crosswords!

Crown & Cross presents Crosswords, our revamped blog. We chose the name Crosswords because we are seeking answers–sort of like solving a crossword puzzle. But unlike crossword puzzles in the newspaper, we are not trying to combine one-word answers or simple phrases for mere entertainment. Rather, we aim to connect ideas and sentiments that articulate Christian perspectives, and thus open up discussions related to our faith. Through sharing our personal experiences, poetry, artwork, photography, interviews, event reviews, and more, we hope to gain a deeper understanding of who God is and who we are in Him.

For at the center of all we share here is the cross of Christ. He is our inspiration and the one who holds everything together. In his letter to the Colossians, the apostle Paul states, “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” 1

We hope that viewers will join with us as we share our questions, stories, thoughts, and reflections.

To God be the Glory
