Stitches of Prayer

It's been heartwarming to witness the outpouring of support that Americans are sending to the survivors of hurricane Katrina. About 250 survivors were sent here to the D.C. Armory this week. Yesterday, I got a quick tour of the Armory yesterday with my boss. It looks like a very well run, organized operation. The people will either end up settling here in DC or they will be given tickets to travel to wherever they need to go.

I have wanted to do something tangible to show my support, so last night I attended a prayer shawl ministry group in Maryland where the women are knitting prayer shawls that will be sent down south to help bring comfort and encouragement to some of the Katrina surivors. I started knitting a beautiful fuschia mohair trianlge shawl in a basic garter stitch at the meeting last night. After we finished knitting we all stood in a circle and blessed the shawls and prayed for those who will receive them.

Below is the information about the ongoing workshops they will be hosting to knit and crochet some shawls for our neighbors to the south who have lost everything.
