Greenleaf pastor carries cross for Jesus

A Greenleaf pastor is reminding people about the meaning of Good Friday.

Pastor Aaron Hutton from Alleluia Lutheran Church is spending the day carrying an eight-foot cross around town.

Hutton says he wanted to use a visual aid to share with people the reason for the Christian holiday which commemorates Jesus' crucifixion.

"I had some moments of emotion as I carried this cross. We carried it from the church here into town and I thought through that too of Christ carrying his own cross, and it was a moment of my pain, and this little bit of weight is nothing to what he had to do," Hutton said.

At 6 p.m. Hutton planned to carry the cross into church for a Good Friday service.
