Our logo is filled with symbolism about Calvin Church, and says a lot about us.
The symbol is primarlily a combination of a blue ancient Celtic trinity knot integrated into a stylized green labyrinth.
The trinity knot stands both for our Scottish background and for the fact that we are trying to be deeply Trinitarian. We are trying to be open to living according to the purposes God the Father created us for, the call of God in Christ for us, and by the power of God the Holy Spirit.
The labyrinth symbolizes our emphasis on prayer, as well as the fact that on our spiritual and life journeys we are all pilgrims seeking the holy. It reflects our own prayer labyrinth, which we installed on the property in 1998.
The logo also has a contemporary style, which emphasizes that we are willing to take ancient traditions and make them relevant for today. The blue of the Trinity knot stands for both heaven and the sky, which is our recognition of the importance of the spiritual. The green of the labyrinth stands for the earth, and for the fact that we also live in the real world and seek to integrate the spiritual into the practical.
The tag line says that we are trying to live according to a strong faith that we hope to bring into all of life;
that we try to be compassionate to all people, regardless of their situation;
and that we are authentically ourselves, and aren't trying to fit the standards of other churches and religious people.
