How the Clinging Cross Came to Be
Mar 27th 2018
"When God have me the design for 'The Clinging Cross©,' I had no idea the powerful impact that it would have on so many people," relates Jane Davis, whose hands God used to create this piece. It's certainly not magical, but it is a wonderful reminder of God's presence.
"In February 2003, when my father was dying in the hospital, I had asked God to give me something tangible to hold that would be a constant reminder that He was ever-present with me while I was living through this crisis. I had tried to hold a wall cross, but it wasn't comfortable, so during my prayer time, God revealed to me that He was going to give me what I had asked for. I'm a Christian jewelry designer, but the next morning, God and I worked in clay, and within minutes, He shared with me 'The Clinging Cross©' design."
The cross, cast in resin from Davis' original design, is made in the USA. It fits perfectly in the palm of everyone's hand. "I'm amazed how it fit everyone," states Davis. "I'm so passionate about the piece because I know that it was God who designed it, and it is God who brings the comfort and peace through this touching reminder."
Who uses it? Every person regardless of gender or age. Pastors hold it while preaching, soloists while singing, people going through chemotherapy, surgery and other physical pain and crisis. It's also given as gifts to caregivers, teens in Confirmation and graduation, for couples starting out their married life together, and the birth of a new baby. Also people in 12-step programs, share groups and those experiencing the grieving process. Another important group is our service men and women. In other words, the crosses are God's reminders to anyone and everyone experiencing life.
Hold one in your hand, then you'll understand.
