The ermine covering on the shield represents the skins used by God to cover the nakedness of Adam, and is typical of Christ’s sacrifice to cover our sins. The engrailed cross is the traditional symbol of carrying our faith throughout the earth and our walk within the world. The red represents the blood of Christ. The gold cross in the middle of the engrailed is empty and represents the value and focal point of our faith; that Christ has risen again. The eagle represents the splendor of God and his over-watching eye of protection, as well as representing the noble and glorious calling to be honorable and upright before God and man; concerning ourselves, not with the vices and superfluities of life, but with the more weighty affairs of human need. The sword represents military service and our duty to judge with candor, admonish with friendship, and reprehend with justice.
