Before I found the Crossing, I never realized you could be a Christian AND support the LBGTQ community, believe in climate change, believe in evolution, and be accepted for having doubts. I've found a...n incredible home here and have experienced so much personal growth! See More

Very welcoming and nonjudgmental group. Even if you do not consider yourself, or you are not sure if you are a Christian, you are welcome.

I am so blessed I stumbled upon The Crossing as a student here at UW Madison. They have welcomed me into their space whole-fully and lovingly, as well as provided a supportive environment where I can ...continue to grow in my faith. This place has become my new home away from home and I'm so thankful for everything they have done for me ♥ See More

When I went to The Crossing for the first time I felt so welcomed and I have felt that way ever since. The presence of compassion and fellowship is very strong.

On campus, the Crossing is the best place to be. You can't beat Vespers on a Sunday night or centering prayer meditation on Wednesdays. It'll be hard to measure up to the 2013-2014 year, now that Doug... and Eric and Jodi are gone. But somehow, I think it'll be even greater in the coming year. See More

"I will never forget my first day in Mother Theresa's Home for the Dying, Nirmal Hriday, 'The Place of the Pure Heart.' I was still a college student, spending the summer before my senior year traveling around Asia looking for signs of hope, places of peace. It now seems ironic that I discovered those gifts in a place marked by death." ~Christopher L. Heuertz, Unexpected Gifts

"The Enneagram is much more than just another popular formula to pair people to the collection of their personality foibles and eccentricities. It explains the 'why' of how we think,act, and feel. It helps us come to terms with our gifts as well as the addictive patterns that tether us to our greatest interpersonal, spiritual, and emotional challenges. The Enneagram invites us to deeper self-awareness as a doorway to spiritual growth. When we can find the courage to be honest with ourselves, we're ready for the Enneagram, for the Enneagram exposes the illusions that have defined our sense of self. In this way, the Enneagram may be the most effective tool for personal liberation." ~The Sacred Enneagram by Christopher L. Heuertz

"I failed my friend in his failure, in his most vulnerable moment. I held my beliefs over Caleb's belonging and used his inability to live up to my standards as an excuse to exclude him. I demonstrated fidelity to a set of behavioral expectations rather than taking the opportunity to love. If I'm honest, I had been unable to extend grace to myself for my own failures, so I wasn't able to extend grace to him either . . . But that's not the way of true community. In true community, failures give us the chance to choose people over principles." ~Chris Heuertz, Unexpected Gifts

You may notice something today something dirty, something dusty. What you’ll see are – ashes. You’ll see some peculiar people around town who have ashy faces. The first one you come to may been someone who smiles at you. And if you’re feeling a bit “engaged” or “compassionate,” you m...

Happy Valentine's Day and a Blessed Ash Wednesday!
Join us for our Ash Wednesday Service from 6-6:30 pm today.

Meanwhile, if you would like to reflect more on Valentine's Day and Ash Wednesday, check out this blog post at…/spi…/valentines-ashes-51941. Here's an excerpt:


"Both involve a marking of some sort — possession of valentine cards often in the shape of a heart and a smudge in the shape of a cross with ashes from burnt palms. Both signify a type of belonging and a willingness to be public about who you are and whom you love. And for Ash Wednesday a remembering of where you came from. As I played with this juxtaposition of one cultural holiday and one liturgical moment, I wondered "How perfect to have the holiday that celebrates LOVE usher in the Lenten season, which also celebrates LOVE." How might this lens of LOVE assist our Lenten reflection?"
