Cross of Service

This cross is designed as a memorial for those officers whose sacrifice has served the greater community. The blue line of crushed lapis is a witness to the line of demarcation between the higher morality that cares for the needs of others and a ‘low’ morality that preys upon the vulnerable. The black ebony ribbon honors that officer who has died. The badge is made of curly maple while the cross is made of white birch. Each cross is inscribed with the officer’s name and badge number.

Cross of Shelter

This is a simple design inspired by a frequently used image in the Bible. God is our shelter in a time of need (Psalm 27:5). God is a shelter from the rain and shade from the heat (Isaiah 25:4). Under God’s roof, there are rooms within the house. There is the upper room where Jesus went for the Last Supper. There is Jesus’ admonition to go to one’s room to pray in private. There is Jesus’ vision of heaven as having many rooms. Woods: African Mahogany, Myrtle and Beech $26.00

Cross of the Path

They all converge at the center of the Cross – at the heart of the Christ – at that place where heaven and earth intersect. It is at that intersection where we greet fellow pilgrims as we are greeted by our Risen Lord who embraces us with the hug of grace (the nimbus). Woods: Cherry, European Beech, Yellow Birch…
