hey everyone...i was just thinking how meaningful and symbolic the Coptic Orthodox Faith is. Everything from the church structure to the scarements- its extraordinary how we give so much spiritual meaning to everything we do.
One symbol i really like is how our church is shaped as the ark that Noah built. Just as the righteouss ppl were in the ark to save themselves from the corruptness of the world, so will the act of entering the church wholeheartedly save us from the evil that exists in our world. therefore, the church is a place for safety and security for those who believe in God wholeheartedly.
now i want you guys to start posting any form of symbolism our church uses...you can post symbolism of the church structure or symbols of Christ or even symbols belonging to the sacraments!!
