Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

I came to know what a prayer shawl was when a friend gave one to me after I had been in the hospital about 18 months ago. When I put it around my shoulders, it felt like a hug from God.

I felt I just had to pass along this ministry to people in my church, Northway Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Dallas, Texas. I asked my friend to come talk to anyone interested in knitting shawls, and to my surprise, about 20 ladies came! Now, just a bit over a year later, we have celebrated our first anniversary and have knitted our 100th item. We knit shawls, and also lap robes for people in wheelchairs. We knitted neck scarves for seniors departing for college last May, and we are now checking into making "chemo caps" or sleeping caps for ladies who have lost their hair for any reason.

We meet once a month and pass along tips and idea on knitting. But mainly we enjoy the fellowship of each other - people for whom knitting is their passion. As one of our members put it, it combines two of her greatest loves - knitting and serving God! It doesn't get better than that.
