Today’s hero is the lamp lighter, because he shows us the gift of LIGHT.
Essential Teachers notes:
This is a story rather than a biblical retelling. It is recorded that Antioch had street-lighting in the early centuries so it’s not a big jump to assume there would have been a lamp lighter. It’s also assumed that people had started to scribble down the words of Jesus before the gospels were compiled. By attaching a face to this story it makes it easier for children to relate to the central teaching it contains. It also highlights how God uses ordinary people and professions.
