Touch Seeing

Supplies needed:  large birthday candles, undecorated frosted sheet cake

Open with these questions:  Ask who has been a light in your life?  Who has shared with you a better understanding of God?  Today we will celebrate the candles in our lives. 

At the front have boxes of birthday candles and a large undecorated frosted sheet cake.  Invite everyone to think of at least one person who has been a light in their lives and invite them to light a candle and place it in the cake.  As more and more candles are added, turn off the lights so the glowing effect of the candles is even brighter.

Point out how one may feel like a little light in the big world. But if we are all such lights for other people, like the ones you thought of as you added a candle, we can be this bright together.
