How to Use This Theme

- Baptism. At Jesus’ Baptism, the Holy Spirit descended like a dove, resting on Jesus in an expression of the presence of God. As believers, the presence of God abides with us. (Matthew 3:13-17)
- Holy Spirit. The dove coming down at Jesus’ baptism is a symbol of the presence of the Holy Spirit, bringing peace and comfort. (Matthew 3:13-17)
- Peace. The most common symbol for peace is the dove, which comes from the Noah story: The olivebranch bearing dove represents the Holy Spirit bringing peace to us. (Genesis 8:8) Also, after World War II, Pablo Picasso designed a dove lithograph for the International Peace Congress. This spurred a cultural trend toward representing peace through the dove.
- New Life. After the flood, Noah releases a dove once a week to search for land. When the dove returns with an olive branch, it brings with it peace, forgiveness, and the anticipation of new life. (Genesis 8:6-12)
