God has made an amazing world, represented by the orange of our Christingle. He created the four seasons and all that we have; food, water, homes, hospitals, schools ..... represented by the cocktail sticks and sweets. Sadly people have damaged God's world through war, greed, injustice, spoiling the environment, and more. People rejected God's ways, but God is love. So God decided to send his son to the world to show people how to live, to bring forgiveness, and to shine His light into all the dark places, represented by the candle on top of our Christingle. But people tend to be selfish, and some people didn't like Jesus, so they killed him by nailing him to a cross, shown by the red tape round the middle of the Christingle. But Jesus was too good to stay dead, humans could not put out God's light, and he rose again, and he continues to embrace the world with his love, shown by the tape going all the way round our Christingle. Jesus says "I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life".
