What is Crux?

The word 'crux' has two meanings. Firstly, it refers to the most important point in an issue, the heart of the matter, the core. Secondly, 'crux' is the Latin word for cross. The symbol of the cross is innately tied into the person, works and identity of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, who gave up his life so that all could live in relationship with the Father. The picture of the cross also, however, brings to mind an intersection, or crossroads. A crossroads of different ideas. In this instance; ideas of identity.

There are four different ideas that come together at this crux, befitting of its shape.

The first is life.

The second is love.

The third is light.

The fourth is truth.

At the intersection, the crux of these four ideas, we can further understand the identity of God, of each other, and of ourselves.
