Practices of Prayer      

Prayer is more than words and sometimes prayer doesn’t come as words. It often helps to pray together. We’ll explore different practices of prayer, and pray together.

Thursday, Jan. 18  Praying with Yarn.  Come and knit or crochet together and put a prayer in every stitch. Winter is a great time to make a hat, mittens, scarf or shawl. This evening will get you started. Teachers and learners welcome. 

Thursday, Feb. 15  Seeds of Prayer: Gardening as Prayer. We’ll start seeds together, and understand how gardening can be prayer.

The Stone Soup Pot

Your contribution to the meal, if you can: Either bring ingredients to the kitchen (or put in the plastic box at the back kitchen door) between 12-1 on Thursday, or bring ingredients at 5:45 that we can use for next time. We'll prepare a vegetarian soup, so bring boxes or cans of vegetable stock; onions, potatoes, carrots, other root vegetables, greens, farm stand produce, cans of beans, bags of lentils or beans; flour, yeast, oil, or bread mix; tea bags; condiments such as Indian or Asian sauces to spice to taste would be great too. We'll have at least one bread machine and a crock pot or pressure cooker.
