The message behind the cross

Born July 10th, 1987 -Died June 20th, 2011

On June 20th, 2011, the day after Father's day, Channing Rodgers woke up that morning and got ready to go to her brand new job in Oxford, MS. Channing kisses her husband Rigby Rodgers goodbye, and then she walks over to the other side of the bed and kisses her 3 year old son goodbye. A few minutes later her husband was woken up by 5 loud bangs at the door as if someone was opening and slamming the door shut. Her husband jumps out of bed and runs outside. He screams, "Baby, were you trying to get in the house?" Channing looks at him and says, "No, I've been in my car. I'm about to go to work. I love you!" "I love you too!" he responds back... Those were the last words Rigby got to here from his wife.

  Ariel Channing Bliss Mitchell Rodgers was killed in a car accident on her way to work. The pounding of the door still remains a mystery, but Rigby believes in his heart that the 5 loud sounds was the holy spirit wanting them to say 'I love you' one last time. 

"The message of the Cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction, but we who are being saved know it is the very power of God."

1Corinthians 1:18

Rigby began making crosses after the death of his wife, Channing, as a reminder to him and their young son, Tristan, that because Jesus died for us on the cross, Channing, through her faith and the grace of God, is now in heaven. The Cross, however, is not a symbol of death, but a symbol of hope. Through the death and resurrection of Christ, we can now have eternal life.

Rigby has now remarried and have two boys, a step daughter, grandson, and granddaughter. 

Tristan helps make many of the crosses by choosing colors and painting them. Not only does Rigby and Tristan spend quality time together while making the crosses, it is also an opportunity for Rigby to teach Tristan about how his Mother's love lives on, and how making the crosses for others is a way of sharing God's love with the world.

Rigby's prayer is that, in some small way, the crosses will touch the heart and soul of those who see them. If only one person is introduced to the Holy Scriptures, or experiences the saving grace of God, Rigby will feel that, through these crosses, he, Tristan, and Channing are touching lives...
