I've uploaded my current header above and I like the bright orange colours.
Basically, I want something heavenly so that would either be the colour of the sun or the sky. I'd like the visitor to arrive and the logo immediately to give them the warm and fuzzy feeling.
My website is http://www.thegodexercise.com but is going to be redesigned to a similar layout to http://www.deepenglish.com
So I need a logo in a similar size and proportion to their logo so I've room for links to the right of it (as long as it's not more than half page wide and not too high).
I like the styling of the Deep English logo too, with the text on the right and an image on the left.
Perhaps the image could be a sun shining, or the shadow of a person reflected in bright light (eg with arms raised towards heaven).
Or hands holding the sun:
Here's some more inspiration:
My preference right now is orange, but if blue would work better on the web I'm happy to consider that.
I need to be able to put the logo on different backgrounds to test website layouts, and also on white and black.
Here are extra links from the comments I've made:
I've uploaded a picture with my vision of the logo:
There are 2 separate elements... the name, the silhouette, and the sun rays.
My ideal logo would be this on a white background with either orange of blue colouring.
I guess the challenge is to have the sun rays in one of these colors
instead of being the usual bright light on a colored background.
Further to my comment... perhaps this would be even better, with the name in the center:
