Taste the Pearls of Life!
A creative idea for making the Pearls of Life a multi-sensory experience!
Many churches in Scandinavia and Europe use the Pearls of Life in confirmation classes. There are so many terrific ideas to share! This one uses food to introduce confirmands to the prayer beads.
The confirmands usually know nothing about the Wreath of the Savior when the confirmation period begins. Therefore, we want to help them remember what the different pearls symbolize. One way is to let them taste the pearls while we introduce them. The flavors that the pearls receive return during the confirmation period when the significance of the different pearls is touched upon, says Maria Jäder Tietäväinen (of Kungsör parish in Sweden).
