Sometimes a pastor or priest needs to add a little pop of color to an already festive celebration. Introducing our Any Season Color Collection! These stoles can be worn during weddings, baptisms, on Easter, for Pride Parades, or any jovial occasion. As always, there is a story behind each one.
Our "Resurrection" stole features an array of colorful butterflies. These butterflies symbolize hope and new life. They represent Christ in our midst whenever we gather to celebrate life or pay homage to a life event marking our loving, covenantal relationship with God. The verse on the back reads, "I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.”
Speaking of God's covenantal love, nothing better represents this than the diversity in creation God has graciously bestowed upon us. Our "Children of the World" stole will remind your parishioners that God's love in Christ is for all and everyone everywhere! Matthew 19:14 tells of Jesus saying, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs."
Finally, our "Light and Salvation" stole was inspired by Psalm 27:1, which states, "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" Fear overwhelms us, our world, and the people who attend our churches. In turn, the stained glass seen on this stole and in many of our churches is meant to inspire awe and calm. Our sanctuaries are meant to bring safety and comfort to God's people. We need not fear when we have hope in Christ. We pray this stole will help enlighten your soul and the people you serve.
