Episode Info

Episode Info:

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!) See the brochure from East Liberty Presbyterian Church here. You can also find all things Chrismons™ from Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, VA, at chrismon.org. Stay tuned to the end of the episode for a special announcement from the Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club. Connect with the Lutheran ladies on social media in The Lutheran Ladies’ Lounge Facebook discussion group (facebook.com/groups/LutheranLadiesLounge) and follow Sarah (@mrsbaseballpants), Rachel (@rachbomberger), Erin (@erin.alter), and Bri (@grrrzevske) on Instagram.
