About bannerblue.org

Part online artist’s studio, part hub for innovative ministry resources, part playground for the imagination—Banner Blue is an attempt to express faith while fully embracing the creative gifts that God has given us.  We like to see what happens when people are supported and equipped to truly think-in-terms-of-God's-infinite-possibility.  From our experience, the results are splendid.  Whether you're looking for resources to do church differently or just want to explore some new ways of looking at things, this is a great place to start.  A word of warning:  we don't just think outside of the box, we think as if there is no box in the first place.

Why Banner Blue?

Why a banner?

In medieval and ancient history, the banner represented a cause or something to fight for or to rally around.  In recent history, banners have come to represent a voice of protest.  Marches for justice follow banners through the streets.  Whether that banner says "I Am A Man," or "Si Se Puede," or "Say Her Name," it speaks boldly and invites you into the cause.

Why a lion on the banner?

For thousands of years and for cultures all across the globe, the lion has been a symbol of beauty and bravery.  If you are beautiful; if you are brave, this banner is for you.  The lion featured on the BB logo is based off of the oldest human depictions of a lion drawn in caves or carved into stone..  

Why blue?

The shallows of a stream and the depths of the ocean are blue.  The midnight and noonday skies are both blue.  Blue is the color of a blood vessel and a spiral galaxy.  Blue is everywhere and for everyone.
