Symbols in Society

Symbolism permeates every area of our lives as human beings. It doesn’t matter what neck of the global woods you live in you encounter symbols every day. Businesses adopt logos—symbols to represent their companies. Roadsides abound with traffic signs and signals—symbols to communicate traffic laws.

All it takes is a stroll through your local mall to realize just how much symbols permeate life. Because of this, I have decided to begin an indefinite series of posts to address some of the more commonly encountered symbols.

This post will become “Grand Central Station” where I will list all links to the symbols discussed. Therefore, this may be a post to revisit as more symbols are discussed and links are added here. If you have a symbol you would like to suggest, please feel free to leave it in the comments section or email it to me at (email also availble on my profile).

    Great idea, I look forward to the series.

    Just out of curiosity, what is your motivation for doing series? Has something led up to this?

    It is always interesting to hear the background story on what God has done to open our eyes to a certain topic or area of life.

    First, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's always great to hear from readers. One of my ministry areas at the church where I serve is the student ministry. We recently did a series on symbols and I thought it would be great information to make available on my blog.

    As I mentioned in the post, I actually went and spent a few hours walking around our local mall to see exactly what kind of symbols our students are wearing, promoting, and encountering on a daily basis.

    It was from this trip that I will cover the first ten or fifteen symbols. I didn't want to limit it to these though, so there will most likely be other symbols I will cover in the future.

    Sounds like a great series. I look forward to following along.

    May He open your eyes to see our culture and truth more clearly than ever before as your write.
