Prayer shawls for Northern Province Synod

092013prayershawlintroAnnounced last fall, the Prayer Shawl Minsitry of the United Brethren’s Church on Staten Island is hoping to provide one prayer shawl for each delegate to the Northern Province Synod in June 2014. That means 250 shawls! The group has commitments for close to 100, and is looking for more knitters to help!

If you and/or your Women’s Fellowship are interested in helping, please contact Kate Reynolds. You can e-mail her at ksrcreate@embarqmail.comThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please let Kate know how many your ministry team can provide.

It will be a great joy to surround our synod in the prayers of the entire Province! Thanks for you help in this ministry

For more information on the Northern Province Prayer Shawl Ministry, see the Dec. 2012 issue of The Moravian magazine.

Pastor Maggie Wellert is pastor of Great Kills Moravian Church in Staten Island.

Friday, January 19 — Psalm 14
Genesis 22; Matthew 8:5–22

The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. Psalm 12:6

You will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. Philippians 2:15–16 (NIV)

Lord, you never promised us that life would be easy. However, you did promise to be with us through it all. May our trust in your promise witness to the joyful hope that we have in you. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
