Jesus on the mountain
“and he spent the night in prayer to God”
Our February meeting began with reading Luke chapter 6 verses 12-16 and thinking about Jesus praying at the top of the mountain.
The atmosphere was one of intense concentration on learning and applying new skills as a smaller number than usual met together.
Small fabric bags were sewn to assist in prayer, with the contents of a labyrinth to be made next month. Painting a design onto candles was much enjoyed and needed great concentration and a steady hand, as did the Celtic pattern making which presented its usual challenges. Frames were decorated in order to contain a bible verse or prayer.
The textile tree of life was added to with more leaves and birds taking their place and there was ongoing prayerful knitting which continues to grow.
The sharing at the end of the morning gave an insight into the huge effort everyone makes to enjoy the range and complexity of each activity.
This month’s lunch featured a delicious purple soup!
We meet again on Tuesday March 14th; please come and join us.
