|My friend put together a lovely information sheet together for us, which I have scanned into our computer to save for future reference|
small square of foil
cake candle and holder
red ribbon (long enough to encircle the orange)
4 soft candies
With each picture I will show you how to assemble your Christingle and the meanings of each item.
|The Orange is a sphere and it represents our World|
|The red ribbon is wrapped around the whole orange. It is red because that is the color of blood. Jesus bled as part of his sacrifice to rescue the whole world|
|Toothpicks represents the four "corners of the Earth" in other words there's not a bit of our World that God does not care about|
|The marshmallows and candy represent the gifts that God gives to us -- all that we need each day, enough for all of us.|
|Light the candle|
|The Christingle Prayer:|
God our Father, your Son our Lord Jesus is the light of the world.
Please help us to shine with his light,
so that everyone in the world can know him, worship him and obey him.
Thank you for making him known to us.
|Then the kids blow out the candles.|
