Every where you go…

Everywhere you go there are logos that tell you or remind you that something is produced by, supported by, owned by, or sold by an individual or group.  Branding is an important part of our world.  The United Methodist Church is no different.  We brand our “product” with the Cross and the flame, but there is more.  Do you know the history of our “logo”?  Read this article and learn more.  The Cross & the Flame
