A Logo from God

September 2009

Upon my arrival in New Zealand, I learnt that my husband and several others from the church were in the process of setting up a Christian charity organisation called Youth Connect. There have been a few attempts at designing the logo for it, but none were used. I decided that I would have a go.

I started to scribble the words "Youth Connect". Looking at these two words, I saw that the letter "t" was a common letter between them. So I joined the two words using the "t". Seeing also that the "t" can be expressed as a "cross" (representing the Christian aspect of the charity), I came up with the following: 










Not quite satisfied with this, I continued to scribble for a further two hours, asking God to inspire me with the one logo that He has in mind for Youth Connect (rather than what I may have in my own mind). Suddenly, an idea descended upon me. It was amazing, it really did feel like something had gone into my mind from above. It felt like a light bulb has just been turned on. Indeed, God continued the logo design by merging the Y and C together - it even has the effect of a youth dancing as if he is happy to be helped by the organisation:










How clever I thought! God is truly full of clever ideas!
I thanked God for the Logo. I presented it to the Youth Connect Team who accepted it. The logo has since been digitally enhanced and is now in use on the Youth Connect Website.
