October 2, 2020 – Susan Johnson, Comfort Shawls
Since its inception, the women of the church have provided knitted goods for sale and for outreach. In 2013, we were introduced to a new mission, founded in 1998 by Janet Severi Bristow and Victoria Galo of Connecticut. The Prayer (or Comfort) Shawl is worked specifically for someone who may be undergoing a rough time, or who has reason to celebrate. The knitter either prays as she works, or channels her energy in to the piece. If possible, the finished shawl is handed around the congregation who channel good wishes into it. Since then, we have provided over 40 shawls, some of which were given to members of the congregation and their family and friends.

September 25, 2020 – Joanne Nicolson, 2nd Degree Black belt
Joanne shared her karate experiences, her love of martial arts and her “journey” to a 2nd degree black belt.
She also shared how that training can be applied practically in everyday life – not as an aggressive pursuit but rather to feel confident and prepared for things that might be otherwise unsettling in life.
