Colors of Faith Crafts


In Christianity, different colors are used to represent Christ and his love for others. These colors of faith are used at different times of year for church decor, often represented by scarves hanging over the pulpit or from a cross. The colors of faith are also commonly used in Sunday school crafts to help teach the faith to young children in a hands-on way.
