The Dove of Peace?

Why are doves associated with peace? Well, it’s not that way in all cultures. Doves are also symbolic of love (when presented in pairs). And, like sheep, they are associated with innocence and were used as sacrifices: gentle, pure, non-offensive creatures. But for us in Western Judeo-Christian cultures, we remember the dove released by Noah (after the flood) came back carrying a freshly plucked olive leaf! Great, now we have to research why olive leaves represent peace! Rabbis compared the olive leaf to "the young shoots of the Land of Israel." So, there you are! Just remember – for Christians – the Dove represents the Holy Spirt. Peace and the Holy Spirit - now that’ll PREACH!
