In 1957, an enterprising Lutheran lady named Frances Kipps Spencer created the first Chrismons™ — the now-familiar handcrafted gold and white ornaments that adorn so many church Christmas trees to this day. In this episode, Sarah, Bri, Erin and Rachel share the origin story behind these ornaments, delve into their rich Christological meanings, and get ready to craft their own versions of these time-honored Christian symbols. Will there be Styrofoam, sequins, and hot glue involved? (One can only hope!)
Stay tuned to the end of the episode for a special announcement from the Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club.
