We are excited to share with you the 2016 LCMS Youth Gathering logo! The logo incorporates a mosaic-like fleur de lis, the stylized lily or iris that is a familiar symbol of New Orleans, with a distinctive cross in its center. Erica Schwan, Design Services Manager of LCMS Communications designed the 2016 logo.
Gathering Program Director Rev. Mark Kiessling shared the following remarks about the 2016 mark:
“The mosaic style of the mark is inspired by the artwork seen throughout New Orleans and the theme of God’s redemptive work in our lives. As an artist arranges broken pieces of varying shapes and colors to create a mosaic image, so too, does God take us, a broken people, and place us together to form His beautiful bride, the church. As His bride, we know that to live is Christ.”
During the five days of the Gathering, participants will study the Apostle Paul’s words to the people of Philippi reflecting upon the key concepts of identity, humility, and community. Using the book of Philippians, we will hear and profess that it is in Christ alone that we stand.
