Shawl of Hope

Shawl of Hope

I am a member of the Prayer Shawl Ministry of Olivet Lutheran Church in Sylvania, Ohio. Since the ministry was begun in March of 2002, we have given 585 shawls to men, women, and children who were experiencing illness, grief, or any situation where comfort was needed. As our members knit each shawl, we pray that it will give comfort and peace to the person who receives it. A very special shawl was given to my daughter, Amy, who was diagnosed last year with breast cancer at the age of 41. With each stitch that I knit, I prayed God would give her courage, strength, comfort, and peace and I would add all the love.
