Living Christingle
Living Christingle At the Christmas Eve Christingle service at Holy Cross Church, Caston, the Rector, Fr. Bob Nichols, dressed up groups of children to explain the symbolism of the christingle. The children stood in a large sack to represent the orange (‘the world’). They were then wrapped around with a red ribbon (‘the blood of Jesus’) and other children held balloons to represent the fruits of the earth. Finally, the whole scene was topped off with a giant candle, symbolising Jesus as the light of the world. During the service, all the children present held lighted christingles and sang carols. posted by Mary Nichols
