The college football team I follow often declares a home game to be a white out. The power of color is demonstrated in the stadium as the 80,000+ fans make an impressive, coordinated statement all in white shirts. We of course see the color white in our churches. Here are a few things we know about the color white:
- White in scripture is connected with purity, joy and righteousness.
- It is the liturgical color for Christmas and Easter.
- In Roman times the giving of white stone symbolised acquittal from crime and innocence. Thus those who overcome sin are purified and cleansed through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
- White is mentioned in scripture. Such as: "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." Psalm 51:7
Additionally, white stoles are one of the two most sold colors at Carrot Top Studio. A pastor once told me that their white stoles were more often replaced than other stole because they were bound to get dirty. We recommend spot cleaning stoles that can get wet with a gentle cleanser like clear shampoo.
Because we're thinking about WHITE we're having our own celebration with a "white out" on eBay. See our bargain selections here.
