We have a crafters group at church. After much discussion we settled on the name Yarning for Community. We work with yarn -- knitting and crocheting. We make things for our community: prayer shawls, hats for all ages, baby booties, and one woman is even crocheting a diaper bag. While we work, we also "yearn" for community... and we have successfully found it in our group. It has been a lot of fun, and fills our souls while we work, talk, and pray together.
Last month we turned in these three prayer shawls.
B.R. has a new grand-daughter arriving from China next week! (Everyone is so excited.) She made this quilt for the little cutie.
We'll be gathering again next week to "yarn" together and to build our community, in more ways than one.
