Poiema Banners | Christian banners, praise banners, worship banners, sanctuary art, pageantry.

Poiema Banners - Unique Christian banners for praise and worship, pageantry, heraldry and sanctuary art.

This series of 6 banners was created for and donated as a gift to The Main Street Presbyterian Church of Petersburg, Indiana.
 
They were presented via processional one a week from Easter through Pentecost Sunday, combined with a sermon series by Pastor Cynthia,  and will continue to hang in the sanctuary.

 The power that Jesus Christ has vested in His Church is exercised as a dispensation of mercy for building up the body of Christ so that the great ends of the Church may be achieved, that all children of God may be presented faultless in the day of Christ.  Each of the banners in this series has special meaning depicting what it means TO BE the Church.   A dove, representing the community of the Holy Spirit  appears in each banner.
Each banner is 2' x 7'.



 

This first banner is
"The proclamation of the Gospel for the salvation of humankind."   On the banner, the book represents the scriptures from which a dove arises.  This indicates the source of both the original witness and the present understanding.  The same spirit that inspired the original writers enables us to receive the gospel.  The cross behind the book and the dove reminds us the heart of the Gospel is Jesus Christ, God with us and for us.

 "The shelter, nurture and spiritual fellowship of the children of God," has multi-hued hands representing all of the children of God.  The dove's wings are tipped downward, sheltering the people of God.  The triangle of light links the dove to the people.

"The maintenance of divine worship".  The chalice, a reminder of the trinity, represents the Lord's Supper while the three drops of water represent baptism in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  The dove reminds us that the same Spirit is present in these sacraments as in the proclamation of the gospel.  The sacraments enact the gospel.  The raised arms signify our response of praise and thanksgiving ~ our worship of the living God.

"The preservation of the truth."  This banner represents the light of truth shining in the darkness.  The dove reminds us that the truth we proclaim to the world is the gospel of Jesus Christ, God with us and for us.  "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

"The promotion of social righteousness."  This banner represents Amos 5:24, "But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever flowing stream."

"Exhibiting the Kingdom of Heaven to the World."   The dove is in flight over the earth, carrying an olive branch, echoing Genesis 6:11:  "And lo, in her mouth a freshly plucked olive leaf," so Noah knew that the waters had subsided from the earth."  This represents the eighth day of creation, God's grace coming into the world, the reign of God proclaimed by Jesus Christ.  The light rising behind the earth represents the dawning of God's kingdom.

Banner Review & Testimonials

"When the banners arrived, carefully packaged, I couldn't wait to open the box.  What I found was astonishing:  six incredibly beautiful banners, each of them unique works of art, in an amazing assortment of fabrics and needlework... There are banners... but these were much more than banners.  They were visual expressions of a personal piety, as well as our collective Presbyterian theology, that spoke directly to the creative mind.  They were visual sermons.  They were, as so many others have said, a true 'labor of love."  We are all so grateful for providing our church with this gift, which is generous beyond words.  They have become welcome aids in meditating on the beauty of God's love for us, and our call to be co-creators with Him.  Thank you."

"The banners are magnificent."

"Looking at these banners at the front of our sanctuary actually 'colors the soul.'  They make me feel 'God is present here.'"

"The banners have added such beauty to our sanctuary."

"Thank you so much for the points of inspiration you have provided our church.  It's like having six new stained glass windows, each giving us a different insight and perspective to God and our faith."

"Each Sunday as a new banner would be brought down the aisle, I would look forward to seeing the vividly bright colors and the creative style of each banner.  Your beautiful banners have added such recognition of the Holy Spirit and the Spirit's significance in our lives."

"It was very exciting - anticipating the appearance of each new banner as it was carried in.  The symbolism is so beautifully presently."

"We were so impressed by the quality and beauty of the banners you gave to the church."

"They are very moving and add so much to our church.  I see something different each time I study them."

The banners are a wonderful addition to the beauty and decor of our church.  When they were presented on a weekly basis and hung in the sanctuary, we thought they couldn't be better from one week to the next, but they were!"

"They are just SO beautiful!  And they look like they were an original part of the plans for liturgical vestment of  the space!"
