The meanings

While these designs were originally inspired by scripture, they are flexible and open to individual interpretation. Not everyone who purchases an Ambassador garment, does so because of the Christian meaning behind the screen-printed design, but rather solely for the style, and that is something I’m ok with. 🙂

Everyone is on a journey and has their own story to share. One of my favourite stories was when a husband purchased the “Faith Braille” hoodie for his wife, not necessarily because of the scripture represented on it, but because they had a blind child, and it was to be a reminder for her to continually have faith that things will work out. Stories like this, warm my heart 🙂
