The Anglican Alliance is off and running. We wish it God's speed. Nice write up on the Anglican Communion News pages HERE.
Then again, there's news in that write-up about the LOGO for the Anglican Alliance, also launched today. Here is the logo:
The thing is, given the obscurity which haunts the workings of much of the Anglican Communion apparatus, what precisely is this logo all about? There is the star, OK, the star of what? Bethlehem? The Compass Rose writ strangely? What? And then there is the green and fertile land thingy, which sort of looks like the British Isles or may not, or perhaps Europe, or maybe the rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouching towards Bethlehem to be born? What? And what of the colors? Red and yellow, black and white, they are equal in His sight? And the green? The green shall lead the pack?
The logo is just odd.
The Alliance has lots of promise. But we can't tell that from the logo.
Still, it may be me. Perhaps it is a new post something insight whose meaning has eluded me.
And yet I wonder, "What's this all about?" And I turn away, for after all wonder should be saved for something more.
