3rd Annual Wren Cross Society Gathering

The Wren Cross Society, the College of William and Mary alumni and me – the once adjunct faculty member who fought the removal of the Christian cross from the Wren Chapel met for the 3rd annual gathering on Saturday.

What a wonderful time with great people.

We had a Christian service of worship in the Wren Chapel.  The 18 inch brass cross was taken out of its plastic case and put on the altar.  It stood there – to offend every anti-Christian .   But no anti-Christians came to our worship of the man who died on that cross, the real one of wood, and rose from the dead 2000 years ago.  Too bad.  They need ot be offended by the message again and again.  it is the truth of the world.  What is unimaginable to the Jews and laughable to the sophisticated Greeks – the resurrection of a dead man into a new body – is true.  It happened.  About 500 people saw the risen Jesus.  He was alive then – and He is alive now.

After the worship, we had supper together at the Kings Arms in Colonial Williamsburg.  Great time for all.  Good toasts.  Lots of laughter.  Wonderful fellowship with people dedicated to defending the freedom, history, heritage and rights of Christians on a public universtity campus.  The second oldest school in the U.S.A.

I’m grateful to be included in this number of this company.  I hope to contribute all I can, when called. I praise the Lord that such people fight the good fight – run the race.



  1. Sounds like a lovely gathering. I’d like to attend sometime.

  2. What a bummer – For the third year in a row I had to send my toast by email. Regrettably, but wonderfully, I was attending a Pastor’s Conference in Florida on how to plant new churches. So to paraphrase the Passover conclusion? “Next year in Williamsburg!”

    For Cross and for College…

  3. I great time had by all. It is always a pleasure to reconnect with the intrepid cast of the Wren Cross Society! An offensive cross indeed!
