Give the gift of light

We consider it a privilege to inter-ceeed before the heavenly Father for your needs, and for the needs of others you make known to us. We believe our God is able (Philippians 4:19), that God cares (1 Peter 5:7), and that God invites people of faith to make their needs known to Him (Philippians 4:6).

Giving the gift of light is one way to deepen your spiritual walk and encourage others. For many, gifts from Jerusalem have special meaning—they inspire and embolden our faith. 

What gifts come from Israel?
Israel is renowned for producing many fine things. Among the long list are fine foods, fruit, technological advances, tourism, olive oil, Jerusalem stone, and gifts with strong ties to faith. The famed Jerusalem stone and olive wood have become favored materials for making jewelry and keepsakes, particularly items with faith connotations (such as a cross, dove, star, or nativity). 

Spiritual gifts from Jerusalem have inspired and been well-received by people who identify as Orthodox, Catholic, and Christian.  

What makes the gift of light a good gift?
The greatest gift ever given is God's gift of His Son (John 3:16). Scripture notes that Jesus is the Light who came to a darkened world. This truth makes our gift of light extra special. We couple great craftsmanship (a beautifully crafted olive wood box) with prayer, a connection with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and light from a quality candle. We will pray for you in Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre and ship your candle in a box made from olive wood in Israel. 

How does the gift of light tie into what Jerusalem is best known for?
Israel has been called a light to the nations (Isaiah 42:6), and Jerusalem is where the Jesus story climaxes. The Light of the world was crucified, was buried, and rose again on the third day in Jerusalem. His light now shines in the hearts of all who believe. The gift of light commemorates these truths and addresses the commandment to pray for others—at all times and will "all kinds of prayers and requests" (Ephesians 6:18).

What is the stone of Jerusalem?
Interestingly, there are several notable stones in Jerusalem. The ancient quarry where the Church of Holy Sepulchre now sits where workers excavated tons of Jerusalem Stone hundreds of years before Jesus was born. Known for its beauty, light weight, and ease to work with, stone workers have favored working with Jerusalem stone through the ages. Other notable stones in the region include:

•    The Magdala Stone: This stone is approximately 2' by 2' in size and engraved with symbols depicting the Jewish Temple Romans destroyed in 70 AD.   

•    The Western Stone: This stone is the largest stone of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The mammoth stone rests perfectly in its place on the wall—with no cement or mortar, and weighs more than one million pounds.  
•    The "Cornerstone:" The greatest stone is the stone which the builders rejected," the stone that became the "cornerstone," Jesus (Matthew 21:40-45). The gift of light honors and commemorates the ministry of the Cornerstone (1 Peter 2:6).

The gift of light is a beautiful way to express your faith and encourage others. In this service…
•    We will light a candle in your honor in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
•    We will place your printed prayer request near the Stone of Anointing.
•    We will place your candle in a quality olive wooden box after the ceremony and ship it to you from Jerusalem. We will include a certificate with your name or the name of the person to whom your offering is dedicated
