I have to agree here.  Symbolism is a thing that causes a lot of division
with Christians.  Even something as simple as the cross ... some think that
Jesus should be on it, and others think that He shouldn't.  For some it even
extends to color ... some people will not attend a church based on the color
of carpet that is in it.  Should we cater to the extreme?  The use of
symbols help people remember things better ... should we use symbols for
this purpose?  Or, should we not use any?  Anyone have any thoughts?
