I have been trying to do a lot of education about the church year at RCC – seasons, colors, major events, etc. Church was extremely hectic on Sunday (baptism + communion + first Sunday back to Church School) but I wanted to do a Children’s Sermon where we “brought in the Wise Men” just to highlight Epiphany to them.
I used green and gold fabric to represent Christ’s royalty (gold) and the transition into Ordinary Time (green). The white creche contrasted the colors of the fabric nicely.
I’m already thinking about next year! Epiphany likely won’t fall on a Sunday, but I was thinking an altarscape with wrapped “gifts” would look amazing.
