The largest cross in the world is located on Bald Knob mountain in southern Illinois. It towers 111 feet high and can be seen for miles in every direction. But the true cross towers higher. It towers above our vain ambition, above our petty concerns, above all that is material, or worldly. It towers above life itself!
