Do you wear a cross?

I'm bored today, so I'll answer the questions that were posted here.

Do you wear a cross? Yes

Is there a particular time or place that you consider wearing a cross? all the time unless I forget to put it back on after I take a shower.

Where do you were it? it is a necklace. Sometimes I have a bracelet too though.

What does the cross look like? It is the United Methodist cross and flame. The cross is silver and the flame is red. The bracelet is just a cross made out of pony beads(like this one) that I occasionally make with kids. I usually end up wearing it for awhile and then take it off until I end up making another one with another bunch of kids. Right now that one I have is made out of these cool beads that change color in the sunlight!

Who gave the cross to you or did you choose it? I bought it, soon after I was baptized in the UMC last year.

Is this your favorite cross, if so, why? at the moment, yes, because of the memories of my baptism that I associate with it.

What does wearing a cross mean to you? On a basic level, it just reminds me who I belong to and that I should act accordingly. My crosses also remind me of when I got them. One of the first crosses I bought when I went to Mexico on a mission trip. It was an amazing and life changing experience. But then I lost that one, so I bought another one when I was in Ecuador for 3 months. That was another life changing experience and the cross reminded me of all the blessing there. Then I lost that one. So when I was baptized last year I decided I wanted another cross so I bought this one to remind me of my baptism.

Nice post, I hadn't seen that meme before. If I was a necklace kind of guy, I'm sure I would wear a cross. But necklaces just don't work on me. I do have a small cross on one of those rubber bracelets that are so trendy these days. I got mine for supporting a persecuted pastor in China, so the bracelet's a little more special than one saying "No fear" or something like that. :^)
