Cross, water, and water lily- identifies the women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America as children of God, baptized, forgiven, and adopted into God’s family. It is a reminder of the growth, beauty, and vitality that rises out of that lifegiving baptismal water.
It is also a reminder of the mission of the church to “go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19)
