Introducing United Adoration’s New Logo

United Adoration has a new logo! We are excited to share the story behind our new symbol.

They give us the ability to fulfill our “chief end,” to both glorify and enjoy God forever. They re-center our lives, reorder our hearts, and reset our minds on Truth.
