I simply argue that the Cross should be raised at the center of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church. I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles; but on a cross between two thieves; on the towns’ garbage heap; at a crossroad, so cosmopolitan they had to write his title in Hebrew and Latin and Greek… at the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble. Because that is where He died. And that is what He died about. So, that is where church-men ought to be and what churchmen ought to be about.
Rev. Dr. George McLeod, Minister, Church of Scotland, 1895-1991

The cross is rough, and it is deadly, but it is effective. A. W. Tozer

Some want to live within sound of church or steeple bell
I want to run a rescue operation within a yard of hell.
C. T. Studd
