An Introduction to the Theme and Logo
“Who do you say I am?” (Matthew 16:15)
On the left, a cross curves around in an arc, creating a circular movement and merging into Jesus’ hair. The organic shapes that form Jesus’ hair suggest foliage, something growing, part of a landscape. The shading in the face forms a gaunt cheekbone that echoes the shape of a chalice.
We are asked a question, and the part of the face we can see looks directly out at us inviting a response. The expression is direct and serious but serene.
As we explore our response to Jesus’ question, we are then challenged to know it, tell it, and live it.
“Who do you say I am?” has been translated into French and the language of the Stoney Nakoda peoples.
