A Word from the Director......

Dear Friend of Cross Road,

It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness

This winter has taken its toll on us both physically and psychologically as the icy winds and several feet of snow were accompanied by horrific reports of self-styled religionists executing innocent civilians around the globe for their different beliefs. At times the world appears most hostile to human life. 

Hoping to shake off the depressing mood of this most bleak season, our organization sponsored a community day celebration for our families and volunteers on March 21st, the first full day of spring. Undeterred by the four inches of snow that fell the night before, the Easter bunny sat outside a packed Commons Café so that our photographer Frank DeChirico could take some heart-warming photos of the children greeting this carrot-chewing celebrity. Even though this outdoor celebration was perhaps premature both liturgically and climatically, it served as a sign that better days lie ahead.

Another signal that, like winter, the culture of death is destined to defeat comes from the work of our volunteers. Itís been said that volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy for while we vote once a year to elect our representatives, a volunteer votes every day for the kind of community in which he or she wants to live.  Including our board members we have more than thirty women and men donating their time and talents to help Cross Road. Their willingness to take on the meaningful work with our mothers as well as the more menial tasks of administration is inspiring. Since there are no squeaky wheels in this group, I am often tempted to take them for granted. It is only on occasions such as our Community Day that, like a mechanically uninclined motorist, I venture to lift up the hood to note how quietly and efficiently they keep the organization running.

And when we add to their number the hundreds of supporters, like yourselves, who donate their treasure to this life-affirming work, then despite the present gloom around the globe, the future is actually bright. For that light that first dispelled the darkness continues to touch other lives and grow brighter. It proves the Word once promised by the prophets to be true: that, we, as a people, with Godís grace, will one day pass over from death to new life. 

Thank you for your continued support.

 
--Bill
