Florida Trenton Baptist Church displays 4,000 crosses to promote pro-life stance & film
Lead pastor Keith McConnell of First Baptist Church of Trenton told The Christian Post that he had a vision three years ago to break down the tragically high number of abortions (more than 50 million in the United States since Roe v. Wade) into a number that was more easily visualized.
The church’s display of 4,000 white crosses on its lawn, meant to represent the number of babies lost to abortion each day in the United States, is making a startling impression on Gilchrist County drivers passing by on a busy highway.
Four white banners on the corners of the display boldly state “4000 Babies Murdered Each Day – Each Cross = One Child Each Day.” On the bottom of the banners, in an effort to direct people to watch evangelist Ray Comfort’s recently released pro-life film, the movie’s website address is printed: “www.180movie.com.”
“The Lord laid this on my heart three years ago. I got the pieces cut. We had everything on palates ready to go, but things would happen and we couldn’t get it together,” McConnell explained.
