Donna: February 2021
Donna's message on 16th April 2020
Hello all, Well it looks like today we are going to be told that this is going to go on for at least another 3 weeks. The reality of course might mean it will take a lot longer as we return to normal. So, what are you doing during this time to keep yourself active, healthy and spiritually fed?
For me, prayer has been an important aspect of this time. I keep a Bible Journal and have been writing, drawing and discovering more creative ways to pray.
I discovered a 'U' tube video, which invites us to create a prayer banner made up of smaller panels which are then sewed together to create one large piece. How wonderful! How lovely would it be to have prayers from across the circuit coming together to form one piece as a symbol of this time, a piece full of prayers and hope in a God who loves us. The idea is that we make a 12x12 cm square panel using materials — old bedding even, and embellishments.
Sew and pray — take your time, this is a prayerful act. Once you have finished please send these to me — I will ask for a team of helpers to help sew the panels together to create one large piece. Wouldn't it be lovely for to then use this in a special circuit service when this is over?
Update on Monday 25 January 2021
I am pleased to say that with some much needed help from Cathy Craft from Cheddington the prayer squares are beginning to be sewn together. There is one up at Cheddington Chapel and the photograph is of another panel, and Cathy is busy sewing together another one.
Thank you to all of you who took the time to pray, sew, stick, glue, print and paint beautiful squares of prayer. I hope you found them a blessing to create as much as they did for me when I received them.
with love and blessings
Rev. Donna Broadbent-Kelly
