Making Crosses: A Creative Connection to God

Making Crosses: A Creative Connection to God

Author: Ellen Morris Prewitt

A new, creative, and active way to pray…

Ellen Prewitt invites you to discover how this new spiritual practice—making crosses—can deepen a life lived for Christ. As she says, "To make a cross is to pray in a new way, but it's not as simple as old-fashioned petitionary prayer; making crosses is a way for God to pray through you."

The practice of making a cross takes you beyond analytic thinking, and offers a way of prayer where understanding comes from doing. Working with the most complex symbol of Christianity—the cross—the pray-er learns to co-create with God in concrete and tangible ways, and discover the meaning of faith.
