A little rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of a local church congregation making its second “cross walk” on Good Friday.
A little rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of a local church congregation making its second Cross Walk on Good Friday.
More than a dozen members of Revolution Life Church made their way through Cleveland, carrying signs and a large wooden cross, and waving to drivers who honked their horns in greeting.
Pastor Anthony Traylor and other church members took turns carrying the cross, which has a wheel at the base to aid in the venture.
“We are ready to go,” Traylor said as they began their trek. “These are the dedicated few who want to get out in the rain and spread the word.”
Because of the rain, and for safety concerns, church members gathered at a location on South Lee Highway, close to the Village Green shopping center, to begin their Cross Walk. Their route took them to Inman Street for a stop at Johnston Park, along North Ocoee Street to 25th Street then to Keith Street before returning to their starting point.
Shannan Traylor, wife of Pastor Anthony Traylor, previously told the Cleveland Daily Banner this is the second year for Revolution Life Church’s Cross Walk.
"We had a Cross Walk at our previous church in Clarksville, and thought we'd start one here," she said, adding a goal of the church is “to make Jesus famous again.”
