crackers toast quickly. Be careful not to let them burn. Remove when

The meaning of the four
Butterfly- Resurrection hope. The butterfly symbolizes change, old life to new life. "...if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17
Star of David- Also known as 'The Creation
Star'. It took God six days to create the universe. This star is formed by two interlocking triangles which also symbolizes the Trinity.
Shamrock Heart- The three hearts in the shamrock remind us of the love bestowed upon us by the Triune God. The shamrock was used by Saint Patrick to instruct about the Trinity. He would ask, "Is it one leaf or three?" His followers would respond, "It is one." "So it is with God!" he would declare.
Heart- The universal symbol of love. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Faith Crackers can be made
