The story of God's self-sacrifice...
is the story with a cross at its center but not at its end:
its plot moves toward the upsetting of all things,
the Great Reversal in which the dead Jesus was raised from the tomb,
and along with him our hope that death be swallowed up by life eternal.
Donald McCullough, The Wisdom of Pelicans

I...argue that the Cross be raised...at the centre of the market-place
as well as in the steeple of the church....
Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles,
but on a cross between two thieves;
on the town garbage-heap;
at a crossroad so cosmopolitan
that they had to write his title in Hebrew and in Latin and in Greek;
At the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble.
Because that is where he dies. And that is what he dies about.
And that is where churchmen should be
and what churchmanship should be about.
