Faith in Action Idea: Ritual
Jesus appeared to the disciples while they were fishing. The fish has been used as a Christian symbol from the earliest days of the church. The Greek word for fish is ichthus. In Greek, the letters making up the word form an acrostic for Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior. Early Christians practiced their faith and worshiped secretly in their homes. A fish painted on the door of a house let Christians know that they would be safe and welcome inside. Draw an ichthus symbol to display at the entrance to your home as a sign of your faith in Jesus as your Savior.
