KERRVILLE, Texas — Millions of Christians around the world spend Easter celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his Crucifixion. In Kerrville lies a huge area dedicated to his eventual return called The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Gardens.
There's something special about this spot in the Texas Hill Country. Artist and architect Max Greiner and his wife, Sherry, said they now know they were being called when an Austin preacher stopped in the middle of the service and told them they were to restore the tabernacle of David.
About a month later, a phone call arrived. On the other line was a complete stranger with a request.
"'God said you're supposed to build a 77-foot, 7-inch cross on Interstate 10,'" Greiner recalled the stranger saying. "And I said, 'What?' I thought he was a nut."
Now Greiner is convinced it was God himself.
The gardens are open all year and it's free to get in from 7 a.m. to midnight.

Guided tours are also available upon request for groups of 10 or more.
