Putney- Well before sunrise, members of Putney United Methodist Church decorated what they call a "Living Cross."

The wooden structure is adorned with hundreds of live flowers, a symbolic reminder that after Christ's crucifixion, he rose again from his grave. [

"The cross itself was a scandal when Jesus died upon the cross, but that was not to be. God had another plan, and the plan is that he's alive and when people drive by and see this cross. It is a beautiful cross. That was the way it was intended to be, never a scandal," says pastor, Don Woeltjen.

The pastor says he hopes the Living Cross will be a sign of hope for everyone who sees it. This the second year the church has created a living cross.
