Christ is all around us, whether we seek Him or not! He can reveal Himself in the most unexpected places, but we must have the eyes to see him.

We want to encourage you—in this fourth week of Lent—to consider joining us in a photo project. Where do you see ‘accidental’ or ‘unintentional’ crosses? Are there crosses in your home, your place of work, or your neighbourhood?

The simple discipline of looking for the cross in everyday life allows us to grow more attentive to Jesus’ ongoing activity in our lives. The sign of the cross is everywhere. And when we really start looking for Him, we shall see Him more frequently than we expect.

When you find one, take a photo and then send it to [email protected]. We would love to share in this discovery with you!

We are now in our third week of the Lent season, and it’s been a joy to receive so many photos of ‘unexpected crosses’! Thank you to all those of you who have blessed us with these images.

We want to encourage you—if you haven’t already—to consider contributing to this project. The simple discipline of looking for a cross in everyday life is a means by which we grow more attentive to Jesus’ ongoing activity in our lives. The sign of the cross is everywhere. And when we really start looking for Him, we shall see Him more frequently than we expect.

When you find an ‘unexpected cross’, take a photo and then send it to [email protected]. We would love to share in this discovery with you. And may this season be full of unexpected reminders of our Lord’s great sacrifice and love.

COD Provides Continuity in Top Leadership

The CRC has appointed Colin Watson as its interim executive director. Leading the denomination at a time such as this is a challenge and an opportunity, he added. “These are interesting times for our world and for the CRCNA,” Watson said, “and I think that obviously as we stay in prayer over the next year, my prayer will be that we will end up in a place that is extremely healthy for the CRC going forward. I don’t know who my successor will be, but I will continue to pray for the right individuals to be appointed at the right time.” And we'll be in prayer for you, Colin!. Congratulations!

CRCNA Statement About The Deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor

"We must all stand up and speak, work, and preach against the sin of racism. This is not political action; it is a biblical position."
Here is the CRC's recent statement. There is an invitation at the end for each of us to ask ourselves a number of questions. May the same Holy Spirit whose coming we celebrated this past Sunday work in all of our hearts and actions.

Many Christian Reformed Church members in the U.S. and Canada have family members living in the neighboring country. The current border-crossing restrictions, to limit the spread of COVID-19, made one family in Lynden, Wash., get creative last week on Mother's Day.
Jean and John VanHemert, members of First CRC in Lynden, drove five minutes north of town to sit at the ditch that separates their state from British Columbia, Canada, where their adult children live. Three of their children, Caroline a member of Immanuel CRC, and Cindy and Tim, members of Willoughby CRC, all of Langley, B.C.; their spouses and nine grandchildren, visited from the Canadian side. A fourth son, James, and his wife, who live on Vancouver Island and are members of Duncan CRC, were unable to join the 0 Avenue gathering. John VanHemert is a CRC pastor emeritus, having served congregations in Canada and the U.S. as well as Seafarers Ministries. This was the family’s first border visit. “There were many other families,” said Tim. “Both USA and Canadian border patrol drove by. The Canadian officer reminded us that there was to be
no touching or passing things across the ditch."
