Wheaton Center for Faith and Disability Logo

Our logo is designed to biblically communicate the image of God reflected. The Wheaton Center for Faith and Disability affirms that God’s image, beauty and glory is reflected in every individual regardless of ability level.  Furthermore, every person has been created with uniqueness. Despite the unique and glorious beauty of every image-bearer, however, every human being is fragile due to the ravenous effects of sin. Together in Messiah as community, we make up His unified and diverse Body.

GLORY (rays coming from jars)

  • “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20, ESV)
  • “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18, ESV)
  • “…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…” (Ephesians 3:17, ESV)
  • “To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27, ESV)

 

UNIQUENESS (fingerprint)

  • “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…’ And God saw that it was good. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:26-27, ESV)
  • “But Moses said to the LORD, ‘Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.’ Then the LORD said to him, ‘Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.’” (Exodus 4:10-11, ESV)

 

FRAGILITY (jars of clay)

  • “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7, ESV)
  • “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9, ESV)

 

COMMUNITY (multiple jars)

  • “As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you,’ nor again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’ On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. (1 Corinthians 12:20-26, ESV)
  • “In him you (plural) also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:22, ESV)
