Blessing Box

 

The Blessing Box is open for all to give and to receive.  It's neighbors helping neighbors, people helping people.  Think of it as a little outdoor free food pantry.  It holds food and other items for basic needs for anyone who may have a need.  We hope to be a blessing to others through this sharing.  We hope to love God and to love others, to be faithful to God in humble service.  We hope to be a blessing to the community, and to be blessed by this ministry.

 

 

 

 

 

Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, or Mantles, etc., the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. Some recipients have continued the kindness by making a shawl and passing it onto someone in need. Thus, the blessing ripples from person-to-person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, mothering God!
