Sipping coffee or tea, and remembering that the spiritual life in Christ is a battle! We saw the symbol of the US Marines with a few alterations as a great image to help us think about life as an Orthodox Christian. Here are a few of the key alterations: (1) Instead of the Globe, we have included the Cross ("...through the Cross, joy has come into the World) and ICXC NIKA (Jesus Christ Conquers). (2) Instead of the Eagle, we have included the Dove (the symbol of the Holy Spirit as well as Peace) holding a banner bearing Semper Fidelis "Always Faithful" ("...Thy faithfulness is unto all generations" -Psalm 119). (3) The original design's Anchor has been kept ("..the anchor of hope" Hebrews 6:19) which not only is a symbol of hope, but of the stability and strength of the Holy Church of Christ amidst the stormy seas of this fallen and sinful world. (4) Finally, instead of the sailing ropes, we have included a Prayer Rope which reminds us of the importance of fervent, unceasing prayer (1 Thess. 5:16). • Ceramic • Dishwasher and microwave safe • White and glossy
