On the surface our logo is a stylized dove flying freely with outstretched wings representing our freedom in Christ which is mediated to us through the Holy Spirit who empowers and fills us. The gold yellow color of the dove represents the kingship of God over our lives but the color is also a bright color calling us to celebrate and revel in Christ.
On a deeper level the outstretched wing encased in thick black lines reminds us that we are able to celebrate our freedom in Christ today only because Another – a precious being, was once stretched out in seeming defeat, humiliation and agony on a cross – our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thus the logo is a call to remember and live out the implications the life, the cross and the resurrection of the Lord Jesus in contemporary society.
The two short black strokes across the dove’s wing also remind us that while the cross of Jesus is decisive for the Christian, it was not the only cross. Others have suffered too and continue to suffer as a result of the shattered and shattering world we live in. The logo calls us to live our lives in solidarity with these who suffer remembering that Christ incarnates himself in them (Matt 25:35-40).
