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.

Saturday, April 21 — Psalm 52
Leviticus 15:1–24; Mark 5:21–43

The snares of death encompassed me; I suffered distress and anguish. Then I called on the name of the Lord: ‘O Lord, I pray, save my life!’ Psalm 116:3,4

The disciples awoke Jesus and said to Him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Mark 4:38–39 (NKJV)

Christ Jesus, how prone we are to worry. How we forget your words, “Fear not.” When our faith is diminished by fear, gently remind us to take refuge in you. “Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.” Amen.
