A Symbol of Our Own

Over the last few months, our congregation has been taking an important step in developing our own sense of identity and the ways in which we present ourselves to the world and are recognized as the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula.

Back at the beginning of July, our Communications Committee, under the leadership of its new chair, Rayven Holmes, launched a contest to design a logo that would be unique and exclusive to our Fellowship.  After all, there are lots of flaming chalice designs out there, and we’ve used many of them in many ways over the years, but there was no chalice symbol that was our symbol.  But we knew we have some creative and artistic people here, and a number of you did submit concepts for a UUFP logo, and it was a shame that we could pick only one!

Once all of the concepts had been submitted, the Policy Board picked the three it thought would best represent the Fellowship, and then all of you got to vote on which of those three you liked the most.  Once the winning concept had been selected, Rayven took it to a company that turned it into a nice, clean logo.  And here it is!

And great thanks go to Joanne Dingus who created the concept that won the design contest and led to this logo!

November 1st was the first Sunday we used our new official logo.  It was on the printed Order of Service as well as on the Principles and Sources bookmarks from which we read as part of my sermon.  Expect to see the new logo on all of our various materials and communications, too.  And, if you’d like to see T-shirts and bumper stickers and badges with the official UUFP flaming chalice design on them, Rayven would be happy to have you volunteer to help make such things exist!
