For the last four good Fridays, members of the churches around West Kirby have made their own crucifixes and stood round the marine lake with them for an hour.
It was a beautiful, clear day today with even the lighthouse at Talacre visible in the distance which I’ve never seen from there before.
I watched them take their places round the lake then walked round and chatted to a few of them. They mostly said they were celebrating the crucifixion and reminding people what Easter was all about.
Its always struck me as odd the way Christians celebrate the death of their hero by parading round the instrument of his death.
But each to their own.. They couldn’t have been more friendly and it made for an interesting sight.
