The Linking Hands logo aims to represent the gracious partnership and joy in Christ-like receiving and giving for all people in His name. At first glance, one might see the ‘palm of a hand’ encircling to form an intriguing 3 fold pattern.

A pattern it is! It is the partnership pattern which Christ have exemplified for believers to live-by and follow. It’s the basic 3-fold cord that which the Bible talks about that cannot be easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12) and it promises that where “The two or three have gathered together in My name, there I will be in their midst.” (Matthew 18:20)

Place your mouse over each 'palm' for a further description!

 

 

Now...just one final look!

Perhaps one can discover an interweaving Chinese character “ren’ which represents ‘people’. Unlike the Chinese belief that one’s lifeline can be ‘read’ from the palm of a person’s, Christians take confidence that God holds the keys to life and death (Revelation 1). And though our lives are in HIS hands, we can be the links if we are willing to let go and let GOD!

 

The Needy Palm represents the people - the “brother or sister” (James 2;15) in dire need. The Dove Palm hopes to remind the need for Christains to beseech God the Holy Spirit  for guidance and help of whom Christ has promised His followers (John 14:16,17). The final palm, the Surrendering Palm, needs to be so, simply because Christ is “... the vine, you are the branches, he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5). Yet as “...members in one body and all members do not have the same function, so we, who are many are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. And since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let each exercise them accordingly...” (Romans 12:4-6). And so the ‘Surrendering Palm’, completes the picture of God’s intent and design.
