Candlemas - Script
« on: November 21, 2012, 08:40:09 PM »
In the Church's calendar, Candlemas, or the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, is celebrated on February 2nd, or on the nearest Sunday. On this day, we remember the occasion (the fortieth day after Jesus was born) when Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple in Jerusalem to 'present him' before God (Luke 2.22-40). St. Luke tells us that, after Mary and Joseph had done all that was necessary under the Law of Moses, two faithful people, Simeon and Anna, gave testimony as to who this child really was. Simeon said that Jesus would be 'a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel'. His words make 'light' a predominant theme for worship at Candlemas. This assembly idea uses different sources of light as symbols to encourages the children to reflect further on their understanding of Jesus as 'the Light of the World.'
