Baptism candles

Baptism is the first sacrament we receive of the Seven Sacraments of the Christian church. One of the three symbols of baptism is the Candle which symbolizes "The Gift of Light" = the idea of living in darkness and then moving into the light.
This part of the baptism service is concerned with turning away from all that is wrong and facing the new life in Christ. 

Now, back to crafting. Here is the pictures of the baptism candles I made.
