The Message without the Motto

My incomparable friend, Mary, shared this today. It wasn’t intended to, but it moves me.

It uses the colors and vague layout of our former denomination’s flag. For those who don’t know, it may not mean much. But for those who can see through the distress, the message of the gospel is there. The motto is gone – the trappings of the denomination are gone – but no matter how bruised, the message is still there. The gospel hasn’t gone anywhere.
