I was introduced to prayer shawls a few years...
Created By: Kathleen Crapse

I was introduced to prayer shawls a few years ago. At the time I thought it was a great idea, but there was no localgroup who was doing this. I put it aside. Apparently, the idea struck a chord for me because about a year later, I made one.

My first prayer shawl[made in 2006] was a crocheted triangular shawl in grape with two lighter pinks striped in. On a trip to Pennsylvania to visit family, I picked it up and decided to give it to my Aunt whose husband was dying. She was thrilled to get it and it exactly matched the colors she was wearing that day. My Uncle died the next morning.

Since then I've made prayer scarves for folks to warm their hearts/souls as well as their bodies. I even made one for a man who had recently lost his mother.

The scarves have gone for birthday gifts, solace to the injured during a slow recovery, those in grief.

This is a personal ministry for me, not a group effort. I find it to be a very tangible way to express solace to those in need. It comforts me too, to be able to do this for someone. Twice the blessing - in the making and in the giving. ;~)))
