The three tables of our life together

Our life together in White Rock, centres around the three tables at which we encounter
each other in our faith journey. For us, this is the table at which we gather to meet the
Lord in both word and sacrament, the table at which we work and study and nurture our
journey in faith and the table at which we offer our welcome to those who would join us,
no matter how short or long the journey. This is a theme which we shall be developing
as we begin once again to reach out to our parish and to those for whom we have the
cure of souls.

Our logo was inspired by the famous Rublev icon of the trinity a copy of which is above the bishop’s throne in church. The icon, written in the 15th century, is regarded as one of the highest achievements of Russian art. In it we see the three angels who visited Abraham at the Oak of Mamre, in the book Genesis, but the image is deeply symbolic and is interpreted as an icon of the Holy Trinity. At the time of Rublev, the Holy Trinity was the embodiment of spiritual unity, peace, harmony, mutual love and humility. The fourth side of the table is left open, inviting us all into that relationship, with God, and with one another. We hope, we offer such and offering here.
