Light of the World

In Italy, oranges are served at ephiphay.

     Oranges represent light in the Italian feast of the Epiphany and are served either as a salad or as dessert.

     The symbolism is for the Wise Men who followed a special light, the Star of Bethlehem. Some people serve the oranges as a symbol of the gold the Wise Men brought to Jesus.

     We invite you to share oranges this Ephiphany season as you think about light in our world.  Enjoy!
