Using the cross to share hope with others

For many Christians, the cross is the symbol of their faith. It represents the sacrifice and suffering of Christ and gives hope to many others.

For Doug Lapp, of Coopersburg, the cross represents how he shares his faith with others through his talents.

Lapp makes wooden crosses and gives them away.

He was born and raised in the Nazarene church with three uncles and a cousin holding the position of minister.

In 1976, he married Tammy and the two began attending Trinity Memorial Lutheran Church in Allentown.
