From the Torchbearer Society:

I believe that we must raise the cross
at the center of the marketplace
as well as on the steeple of the church.

I do not believe that Jesus was crucified
in a church between two candles,
but on a cross between two thieves,

at a crossroads of politics
so cosmopolitan
they had to write his title
in Hebrew
in Latin,
and in Greek.

At the kind of place
where cynics talk smut,
and thieves curse,
and soldiers gamble.

Because that is where He died.
and that is what He died about.

And that is where the church ought to be.
and that is what church people ought
to be about.
