While traveling down I-45 with Connor, I exited Beltway 8 and and as I started up the steep incline and rounded the corner, I found myself face to face with the biggest freaking cross I have ever seen in my life. I literally exclaimed "HOLY SHIT!"
The cross rises up over the beltway when nothing else does. It's just cross and sky for as far as the eye can see. I am both drawn to and completely repelled by this behemoth of a structure. I've gone back twice to take photos, and I know I will have to go back again.
The cross belongs to the Sagemont Church, formerly known as Sagemont Baptist Church. It is on a campus that looks like it was purchased for expansion. Something tells me that the long term plans for this church is to out mega the mega churches, like Lakewood.
