The Dogwood tree is said to be the wood used for the crucifixion of Jesus. God said he would never let the Dogwood tree grow tall enough for another crucifixion. So now the dogwood is a small tree that blooms in the spring.
It has 4 petals in the shape of a cross with a piercing on each petal and a center crown, all representing Jesus on the cross. It is a sign of hope for all of us to remember what Jesus did for us on that cross.
Many women who find them in the crisis of homelessness feel they are being crucified, Prelude Home’s logo is to give them hope of a better future. Prelude means beginning and the Dogwood tree represents hope.
