We have decided to send all of our completed prayer shawls to various agencies in Connecticut. I displayed them on the altar and we blessed them during worship. It was bittersweet to see the shawls juxtaposed with the “joy” blocks on the altar and other Christmas decorations around the sanctuary.
My heart is still breaking for this community.
Our prayer shawl ministry has been so powerful to work with. If you are interested in starting one and have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
