Understanding the Symbol
The central figures stand in praise.
Rooted in faith, the trio of women emerge.
The outline of the central figure forms a cross.
We are Presbyterian women, engrafted in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, It is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives in us.
The right figure holds a book to guide her reading, studying, praying, or meditating.
The left figure reaches out to care for others, as she shares, nurtures, and heals.
The circle represents the church worldwide where women offer their gifts and
talents in the midst of the global community.
The uplifted arms of the central figure reach out to embrace a just peace for the
world. The relationship between the three figures depicts lives of wholeness rather than turmoil.
The three women have no distinct features and represent all women.
The shapes surrounding them express energy, strength, and openness.
Our name, Presbyterian Women, ties us to our denomination. The open book resembles the Bible depicted in the seal.
