I ran across an article entitled The Wondrous Cross today, primarily referencing the oddity that we use a crucifix in so many works of art, wear it, etc., with the goal of stating that we should reflect on how it came to be a symbol of faith from an emblem with such a stigma. This has some application to our music, too. It’s an interesting read. I would add that we should not treat it lightly; it should still carry that stigma. That it was such a despicable way to die should add more that much more wonder and amazement as we reflect on our Savior’s work.
