Presbymergent

The good folk at the Presbymergent site are looking for a logo. Or, for those who don’t like any hint of branding or labels, it’s a temporary artistic expression of who we are. We will use it to loosely identify ourselves, but it could change at any moment.

One of the over-arching images of the emerging church is that you don’t look to the outer branches of the trees to survey the health of an ecosystem, you look at the new growth on the ground floor (Brian McLaren). The wonderful thing about mainline emerging movement is that we have that canopy of cover that protects the new growth (Diana Butler Bass). That was the vision I was trying to get across–the emergence of new growth from the forest ground. You can click on them to make them larger.

These still need to be cleaned up, which I’ll take the time to do if anyone’s interested in them. So, what do you think? Which one do you like better? Even if you have nothing to do with Presby- or -mergent, I’d love to hear your opinions.

Ryan Pappan’s got some cool designs in the works. Here’s a link to his.
