A question from a reader: Hi all,
I am Presbyterian, and have always wondered why the cross has a circle on it. I am not talking about the cross with the dove, bible, stand, etc., but a normal cross with a circle on it. To see an example of what I am talking about, go to Wikipedia, type in “Presbyterian” and go to the “Doctrine” section of the page. There will be picture of the cross.
Anyway, does anyone know for sure what the circle means or why it is there? This has never been explained to me, and I have always been curious about it.
