CHRISTINGLE SERVICE

christingle2

 

  • The orange represents the world in which we live and reminds us of our responsibility of being good stewards of its resources.
  • The red ribbon wrapped around the Christingle orange is a symbol of the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed for our sins. It is also a symbol of forgiveness.
  • The dried fruit and sweets represent the four seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and the fruits of the earth of young people.  (Some say the four points of the compass of North, East, South and West to represent the good things the world provides). We are entrusted to share the fruits of the world with others.
  • The lighted candle represents Jesus Christ who is seen as the Light of the World who shows us God’s love.
