The following interactive activity can be used when exploring different names for God or stories about the meaning of names in the Bible, baptism, or names that we claim as our identity as a child of God.
For a recent conference, I made the following candle. I put the logo on a 9″ tall candle using wax paper, tissue paper, and a heating tool. The process is explained here.
After worship, I gently heated the strips of wax and added it to the Christ candle, which was to be used everyday at worship. The wax strips can be warmed with a blow dryer or by quickly running the back through the flame of the candle.
At the end of the conference during closing worship, I provided smaller candles (one for each participant.) Using the same process when putting on the logo, I put the names of each participant on each candle.
I set up the table so that their were pieces of tissue paper next to each candle.
I then invited participants to write names for each person on the tissue paper.
Using the same process to put on the logo, these words were put on their respective candles for each participant to take home with them, reminding them of the names that their fellow sisters call them.
