The colour white prevails, revealing the exterior and interior presence of the divine being we call God. White is the brightest and most reflective of the colour spectrum.
The multi-dimensional character of our divinity has a long symbolic tradition of expression using three circles: the three persons of God. In this depiction, the yellow represents whom we call the first person of God, the orange is an expression of the Holy Spirit while the vibrant red symbolises Jesus of Nazareth who personified and materialised a new way, a new truth and and a new life.
The extensions of the red circle show the disciples, a small community collected around a campfire perhaps, or around a table, talking with Jesus. The red represents the visibles while the white is the invisibles that are a real part of the community of God.
The dots show the extended family, the village, the suburb, and the people of the world and beyond. Again the colours of the visibles and the invisible are a part of the narrative.
The four outer dots reflect the ancient Christian symbol of the Cross that link traditions of the past to the emerging signs of the new.
The colours red, black and yellow, and the dots, link to the indigenous peoples of the land we now call Australia. It was and it is this land that forms an integral belonging to their faith belief, which is now being explored by newcomers.
