Circle of Prayer and Creativity
Are you interested in knitting or crocheting a prayer shawl or sewing a prayer blanket to be given to someone experiencing a special joy or a difficult challenge in life?
You can make prayer shawls whenever you choose in your schedule and (as you're able) gather with others in a Circle of Prayer and Creativity to knit, crochet, or sew together. As you make a prayer shawl you are encouraged to pray for all who are facing difficulties and specifically for the person (known or unknown) who will receive your prayer shawl.
The prayer shawls/prayer blankets are given as a visual and tangible expression and reminder of the love of God and the love of his people. Those who received the prayer shawls are invited to wrap themselves in God's Love during times of prayer and Bible reading, during times of joy and celebration and during times of pain and discernment when perhaps they are even unable to pray themselves.
A daytime Circle of Prayer and Creativity meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 11:00 a.m. in the Commons.
If you or your small group would like to start a Circle of Prayer and Creativity at another time or if you'd like to help in other ways, please contact Jean Blidy in Pastoral Care at 630-321-3936.
