What’s that thing?


You may have wondered what this logo is on the side of the page. In fact, if you wondered enough to click on it, that’s how you got here. Congratulations, you’ve discovered the answer to your question. ;)

I doodle a lot when I’m working or taking notes. This symbol emerged during my time in seminary through many lectures and seminars. It’s meant to resemble somewhat of a blooming flower, with yellow leaves in the middle and green outer leaves (it’s viewed from the top and flattened). The center leaves form the Trinity knot, an ancient Christian symbol representing God. The Trinity emerges in the leaves of the earth, symbolizing God’s emerging work among us here on the earth. It’s a visual representation of the line from the Lord’s prayer, “your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” It’s a bit of heaven emerging on the earth.

So there you have it. It’s here because what it symbolizes represents a significant part of my philosophy of life and ministry. And I think it looks nice.
