The Cross


Have you seen the cross 10/13/2006

Before moving to Effingham 3 years ago, we often drove through on our way to Florida. I will never forget the first time we saw "The Cross". We couldn't believe the size of it, had no idea why it was there-and actually thought it was a little odd. Now, we live here. I don't really notice it much anymore, but people do ask about it! What is said about it is: "The Cross Foundation completed a 198 foot Cross at the intersection of Interstates 57 & 70 in Effingham, Illinois. The site is intended to serve as a beacon of hope to the 50,000 travelers estimated to pass the site each day. The Cross Foundation is dedicated to building both faith and family on an ecumenical basis." There are times that there are special sunrise services at the base of the cross.
