Symbolism of Individual Colors

This is a combination of several different teachings on colors. There are some minor variations as you can see, but remember as an extension of His overwhelmingly creative nature, God often uses color to express Himself. We too can express ourselves in different colors, in who we are and what we believe through our worship.
