Matthew 5:1-2; John 13:35; I Corinthians 13:1 The Chi Rho symbol is one of the original symbols used by the early Christians. When the characters are superimposed, it signifies the crucified Christ. Here the symbol is placed on top of a mountain, signifying Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in which he laid out the instruction for living and being a faithful servant. The ship at the top of the window represents the church on its mission to carry the words of the gospel to the world. The ship, laden with love, emerges through stormy waters with its cargo for the world. It encounters blistery forces of injustice, endures hurricanes of hate and suffers occasional internal rebelliousness. Still, she navigates uncharted seas to reach new frontiers with the message of human salvation. We followers of Jesus act as the ship’s crew, helping to guide and maintain the noble vessel in its quest to travel around the world.
