Tzouhalem cross a memorial to Christ only

Duncan – One most important letter re: the cross on Mt. Tzouhalem.

In a recent paper a lady wrote a mostly well thought-out letter, but she made one serious mistake and as a Christian myself, as is she, I must make a correction here.

The cross does not honour the men who fought and died for us. The cairn on Mt. Prevost does that. The cross is a reminder of the crucifixion of Christ, who died so that we could have everlasting life after death.

It is never a simple cross. For most of us when we look up at that cross we are humbled and grateful for the great sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us.

You made some good points, Lauren, and those who oppose our beliefs should be grateful that they live in a free country where they, too, can follow their own beliefs, whatever they might be.
