To Light The World This symbolic creche has been placed before the altar of the Church of the Good Shepherd, United Church of Christ, 2145 Independence Blvd. The idea was borrowed from the Abbey of Our Lady of New Melleray, a Roman Catholic Trappist monastery in Dubuque, Iowa. Symbolism is used in place of the traditional figures at the crib to invite meditation on the mystery of the incarnation. Christians should mirror the life of Christ in their own lives and thereby reflect Him to the whole world, the abbey's superior writes in a letter to the Rev. Richard Crusius, pastor of Good Shepherd. In a candlelighting ceremony at the local church on Christmas Eve, ushers will receive their light at the creche and pass it on to members of the congregation.
