i like candles in worship. nothing blatantly spiritual about them, they just help me to get into the right mindset. washington elementary school now has a no open flame policy and therefore regular candles are a “no no.” the issue i now face is whether flameless candles are just completely cheesy or not. i feel pretty lame putting out flameless candles just as a mood setter but at the same time i really do like candles in worship gatherings. of course, flameless candles are merely a simulation of the real thing and therefore it could be argued that they aren’t really going to serve the same purpose anyhow. i no for most of you this is probably not a big deal, but it’s twisting my brain in knots. any thoughts?
