The Candy Cane拐棍糖

The candy cane begins with a stick of white candy. The white symbolizes the purity of the Christmas season. Red stripes are for the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we may have eternal life.
The candy cane is formed into a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus. It can also represent the staff of the Good Shepherd. Its hard consistency represents the Solid Rock, the foundation of the church, and the firmness of the promises of God.

拐棍糖开始的时候只是根白色的棍状糖果。白色象征着圣诞季节的纯净无瑕。糖果上的红色条纹是基督流在十字架上的鲜血,借此我们才能得到天堂里的永生。拐棍糖做成字母“J”形,代表的就是“耶酥”的名字首写字母。它同时也代表那位好牧人(即基督)的手杖。糖的坚固粘性代表坚定的团结,这是教会的基石,以及上帝允诺的稳固。
