[Of Special Interest to Children]
High up on a bluff overlooking the great Mississippi River is a camp for girls. At the end of each week an impressive candle-lighting ceremony is held. The girls start down the trail from the top of the bluff carrying small lighted candles that have been fastened to paper plates. The lighted candles glow like fireflies in the black velvet of night.
As each girl places her lighted candle upon the water and gives it a gentle shove to start it on its journey down the river, she offers a silent prayer. It may be a prayer for a loved one; it may be a prayer for herself; or perhaps one for the whole world. Girls and guests stand in complete silence as they watch the tiny lights sail out over the water.
There is much beauty in this ceremony of the lighted candles; but it is in the quiet atmosphere of prayer that the true value of this experience is felt. The beauty of the lighted candles is much enhanced by the inner glow of peace that is in the hearts of all those standing in prayer on the shore of the river.
