Christingle at St Anne's

St Anne's had its Carols & Christingle service tonight, including a Nativity Play beautifully performed by the children of the Sunday school.

At the crucial moment the congregation collected their Christingles (the orange representing the world; the candle, the light of Christ; the red ribbon, the blood of Christ; and the fruit, and the sticks representing the four seasons and the fruit of the earth), the candles were lit, the lights were dimmed and we all sang 'Away in a manger' and 'Silent Night.'

Earlier I had spoken about signs, and the message to the shepherds from the angel about the baby lying in a manger which would be a sign to them that the Saviour of the world had been born.
