What's a Hamsa?

Posted by Hamsa - 1 month ago


The symbol of the Hamsa is found in many near-Eastern and middle-Eastern cultures. It is often seen on amulets, bracelets, and household objects. It represents the Hand of God.


The Hamsa logo that I use is unique - created in collaboration with my wife. The elements, and what they represent are:


The Hand (Hamsa)

The hand of God symbolizes that we are meant to do God's work. We submit in obedience to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, and seek to do His will by being an extension of His hands.


The All-Seeing Eye

To us, the eye of God represents not only the fact that God is omniscient (all knowing) and omnipresent (all places), but also that we have been given God's eyes to see the world. Instead of looking at situations and people through the lenses of culture, we view others with compassion, love, grace, humility, and hope.


The Tetragrammaton (יהוה‎)

The name of God, in Hebrew, is typically transliterated in English as YHWH, and pronounced Yahweh.

alright, thats solid. in return of using these symbols, what do you hope to accomplish in their use? I understand a bit, but is there even more to how they influence your work? or is it pretty much spread as how you've laid it out?

Good questions!

These symbols do not, in and of themselves, influence my work. Rather, they act as a representation of the ethos behind the work I do.

Being of service to others can look like all kinds of activities - writing letters to folks in nursing homes who don't receive visitors, paying for random people's laundry at the laundromat, picking up trash in our community, or anything like this.

We can see in Genesis 1:26-28 that man's original purpose on the earth was to reflect God's image and to rule over the creation under God's sovereignty. What that looks like is different for each of us, because we are all made with unique talents, gifts, and blessings.

To act as God's hands is to use what He has given us wisely to benefit His creation!
