A church in Boca Raton Florida has cut a deal to put a 99-foot phone tower inside the cross of their building. Some church members opposed the plan and thought it sacrilegious. Others thought it good business and stewardship. The cross will be carrying messages around the world. Regardless of how you feel about the church's decision, one thing we know: this is true of the cross. The cross of Christ still communicates and its message reaches every part of the world.
