They had a cross to bear
Over 200 people from various churches in Eagan and beyond gathered on Good Friday morning for Crosswalk 2010, a 20 year plus tradition originally started by Easter Lutheran Church. The 3 mile walk of rotating participants carrying the wooden cross began at Easter Lutheran (on the hill) and made stops for a scripture reading, prayer and song at each of these route points: St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Eagan City Hall & Police Station, Dakota County Library, Glacier Hills Elementary School, a park, All Saints Lutheran Church, Advent United Methodist Church and finally at Crossroad Church. The wooden cross was erected there just as lighting, thunder and rain began.
