Shawl Knitting Ministry

The Shawl Knitting Ministry group in our church knit a shawl for one of our members. She has Alzheimer's Disease and is residing in an assisted living facility.

One day, the nurse was trying to convince her to get out of bed, get dressed and come to the dining room for lunch.

She was determined to stay in bed until the nurse said, "You have a visitor and she has a present for you."

Our Diaconal Minister gave the shawl to her and told her someone prayed for her while knitting it for her.

"Someone knit this for me...and they prayed for me as they knit? Well, I'm going to the dining room to show off my new shawl!"

As you can see, many people benefit from an act of kindness. Continue to share your gift of knitting - EVERYONE can make a difference in this world.
