Alpha and Omega
The school courtyard has had another new addition.
The school courtyard has had another new addition. Since the visit from the duck and her ducklings 6 super new stained class windows have been put up by members of the local church.
They show 6 christian symbols beginning with the greek letter alpha and finishing with greek omega - both ways Jesus used to talk about himself. All 6 symbols are:
- Alpha – First Letter of the Greek alphabet.
- Cross – Most recognisable symbol of a Christian.
- Rainbow – Sign of keeping promises -God's faithfulness and his promise to never again destroy the earth by flood
- Triquetra – the sign of the trinity. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit all joined together . [Also find the fish in the picture!!- another Christian sign]
- Natal Star – Key symbol for the Birth of Christ, also the sign of the cross
- Omega– Last Letter of the Greek alphabet .
Attached is a document detailing each symbol to view. The stained glass provides a beautiful addition to an already peaceful courtyard. Do take a look when next stood at the office desk.
Many thanks to all those invovled in putting these together for us at the school.
