Sixth Sunday of Epiphany

We Run for A Crown that Will Last Forever

1 Corinthians 9: 25

Roman athletes competed for crowns of leaves, instead of for trophies or ribbons like we do, when they ran races.

They wore the crowns in parades and at parties after the games while they celebrated their victories. But their crowns wilted and died because they were made of fresh leaves.

Buy lengths of various sorts of garland - sometimes you can find gold or silver wire with stars attached at the craft store - and let each child create a victory crown to wear on his or her head.
