The words of Jesus 'Love one another as I have loved you '(John 15:12) are part of the conversations Jesus had with the disciples in the Upper Room in Jerusalem before he journeyed to the Cross. He gave them, as he gives us, a model for living as his followers.
The logo for this church year links the love of Jesus to how we are called as a congregation to love each other. His love is unconditional and inclusive and challenges us to show this in the way we relate to each other in the church and in the wider community.
The logo links the meaning of the Cross as sacrificial love to how we serve one another. The towel and basin remind us of how the servant Jesus washed the feet of the disciples. Love and service belong together as we seek to care for each other. It will also challenge us as we reach out to the community as servants of Christ and seek to show, in words and actions,what it means to love as he has loved us.
