Title:Gerald Schnakenberg’s last Sunday
Regrettably, Nov 13 was Gerald’s last Sunday. He is moving to Chicago in the next week where he has a new job. Gerald was active as an acolyte, attended adult education and is an avid nature photography. We will miss his poignant comments in adult education, particularly.
As one of his last duties, he helped Catheriene explain what IHS means which is on crosses or in our case prominently displayed on the board. The choir had asked about it.
IHS is a popular Latinized monogram acronym from the Roman 3rd Century based on the GREEK letters Iota (i), the first letter of Iēsous (Ἰησοῦς), Greek for "Jesus"; Theta (th), the first letter of Theos (Θεóς), Greek for "God"; and Sigma (s), the first letter of sōtēr (Σωτήρ), Greek for "Savior".
The monogram is a shortening of the 1st century acronym Ichthys, Greek ἰχθύς which compiles to "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior" used commonly by early Christians and often simplified to the image of a fish (the literal meaning of the greek word ‘ichthys’).
