The Blessing Object for this step is a Carabiner. The parents will be giving their sons and daughters a carabiner, which is used to connect a mountain climber to his rope. This carabiner says “Climb Together” on it. The T in the word Together is actually a cross, symbolizing how important it is to keep God in the center of all our most important relationships.
