noun. A fusion of the color blue, representing God’s grace and mercy, with the word continuity, an uninterrupted connection, succession, or union.
The color blue was chosen as a reminder that this business exists because of God’s grace and mercy, that only through God’s guidance will it achieve its potential, and that only through attention and obedience to God’s Word will it prosper. The scripture passage below from the Book of Numbers in the Old Testament provided insight to this foundation of BluTinuity.
New International Readers Version (NIRV)
37 The Lord said to Moses, 38 “Say to the Israelites, ‘You must make tassels on the corners of your clothes. A blue cord must be on each tassel. You must do it for all time to come. 39 You will have the tassels to look at. They will remind you to obey all the Lord’s commands. Then you will be faithful to him. You will not chase after what your own hearts and eyes wish for. 40 You will remember to obey all my commands. And you will be set apart for your God.
