Presbyterian Women Symbol and Interpretation
FORGIVEN AND FREED BY GOD IN JESUS CHRIST,
Forgiven and freed by grace through faith, the central figure stands in praise.
AND EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WE COMMIT OURSELVES:
Rooted in faith, the trio of women emerges. The outline of the central figure forms a cross. We are Presbyterian women, engrafted in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is no longer we who live, but Christ who lies in us.
TO NURTURE OUR FAITH THROUGH PRAYER AND BIBLE STUDY,
The right figure holds a book to guide her reading, studying, praying, or meditating.
TO SUPPORT THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH WORLDWIDE
The left figure reaches out to care for others, as she shares, nurtures, and heals. The circle represents the church worldwide where women offer their gifts and talents in the midst of the global community.
TO WORK FOR JUSTICE AND PEACE,
The uplifted arms of the central figure reach out to embrace a just peace for the world. The relationship between the three figures depicts lives of wholeness rather than turmoil
AND TO BUILD AN INCLUSIVE, CARING, COMMUNITY OF WOMEN
The three women have no distinct features and represent all women. The shapes surrounding them express energy, strength, and openness.
THAT STRENGTHENS THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.)
Our name, Presbyterian Women, ties us to our denomination. The Bible resembles the Bible depicted in the PC (USA) Seal.
AND WITNESSES TO THE PROMISE OF GOD’S KINGDOM
Guided by our Purpose, we witness to the reality of God’s realm.
