Do you wear a cross? 7 March 2006

Do you wear a cross? If I am clothed, then 95% of the time I do so (unless I have misplaced it, which is not that uncommon an occurance)!

Is there a particular time or place that you consider wearing a cross? See above, so “no”

Where do you wear it? Attached to a leather bootlace, around my neck usually outside of my clothing.

What does the cross look like? For those in the know it’s a silver Worcester cross (apparently) about 3/4″ across (equal length arms, quite deeply incised) with enough tarnish to look “lived in” (which it is). I have two others – a small wooden one, also on a brown leather bootlace (my “spare”) , and a plain silver one on a silver chain. I rarely ever wear it. It was a Christmas present from my parents but it’s too “clean”, too “normal” and the chain is too short to comfortably fit over my robes. I think it makes me look like a wannabee bishop without enough money to have a real episcopal cross!

Who gave the cross to you or did you choose it? My parents gave me the Worcester cross too. I think it took a good number of years before I started to wear it regularly, though.

Is this your favorite cross, if so, why? Yes. It’s light, it’s like a familiar friend, and I’ve never seen anyone wearing one like it.

What does wearing a cross mean to you? I wear it as indicator of my faith, and because it isn’t a fish! I wear it to make other people think. It ‘s less of an identification badge to those in the know (like a fish), but it’s not of a common “fashion statement” design.
