The Legend of the Sand Dollar 

     It is said that Christ left the sand dollar on Earth as a symbol to help the evangelists teach the faith.

     The five holes commemorate the five wounds of Christ, while at the center on one side blooms the Easter lily, and at the lily's heart, is the star of Bethlehem.

     The Christmas poinsettia is etched on the other side, a reminder of Christ's birth. 

     According to this legend, if you break the center, five white doves will be released to spread good will and peace.

What is "Sand Dollar" ?

Sand Dollar stories and articles focus on subjects of a Christian nature.  Expect to find accounts of Angels, Miracles, Acts of Faith, and other  "God Things".  The service began on Monday, July 31st, 2000.  You may subscribe to the daily mailings by clicking on "Subscribe to Sand Dollar" in the panel to your left. 

"SandDollar" was chosen as the name for the new service at the suggestion of Diane Toma, one of our Starfish members. Subscribers to Sand Dollar are called "Doves" after the 5 white doves that are released to spread good will and peace when a sand dollar is broken.
