Read: Genesis 8:11
In the story of the flood, God looked at the wickedness of man and it broke his heart. To get the full picture, read Genesis 6-8. When the flood waters receded, the dove brought back an olive branch. A symbol for Noah.
An olive branch is a symbol of peace. I chose the olive branch to represent this blog because I want it to be a place you, the reader, can step into for a few moments of peace in a world filled with chaos.
Extending an olive branch is a symbol of making peace, the willingness to work through an issue that could potentially be divisive.
As you step out of your weekly routine into a day set aside for worship, rest and reflection, extend an olive branch to someone. And that someone might be yourself.
