CROWN OF THORNS

posted 12 Dec 2014, 04:15 by clydesdale foodbank


The crown of thorns has been made into a “ring of remembrance” on top of the Christmas Tree. The King’s crown is to keep our focus on the King of Kings. The poem below was read on the first Advent Sunday. Take time to read it now.

This crown is not a pretty sight to mix with cheerful Christmas lights

Yet when sweet Silent Night is sung and hallowed holy bells are rung-

Perhaps we’ll take some extra time, and up towards our tree top climb-

To place this crown for all to see the kind of King He would be,

And in some way this humble act, just might bring the meaning back-

To Christmas and the King of Kings whose crown declares the gift He brings.
