In Snyder County, members of one church observed good Friday by taking part in a 30 mile cross walk.
These men were hard to miss as they carried a large wooden cross on their backs along Route 522 near Kreamer. They are from Christ Church of Beaver Springs, and participated in a 30 mile cross walk from Northumberland to Beaver Springs. The walk re-enacts the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
“Give them a physical reminder of the fact that he was a real person. I mean, he walked a real wooden cross, and he was put on a cross with real nails, it was real blood and he offers real forgiveness,” Mike Sellers said.
This is the second time members of Christ Church of Beaver Springs are doing a cross walk on Good Friday. Around 30 men took turns carrying the cross for up to one mile at a time.
