From Linda Douglas at the UMW:
Assembly 2014 Call for Prayer Shawls and Baby Blankets

Calling all United Methodist Women members with knitting, crocheting or sewing skills! Create prayer shawls and baby blankets for those in need! 

Suggested sizes:

  • Prayer shawl, triangle: 65" long and 32" center back 
  • Prayer shawl, rectangle: 19" x 69" or 14" x 70"
  • Baby blankets: 30" x 30", 32" x 32", 36" x 36" or 38" x 38" 

These are suggested sizes and should not limit your creativity. The shawls and baby blankets may be made from fabric or yarn. 

In the months preceding Assembly, United Methodist Women members should take completed prayer shawls and baby blankets to their local churches to be blessed. Then send the shawls and blankets to Linda C. Douglas, United Methodist Women, 475 Riverside Drive, Room 1504, New York, NY 10115 by March 1, 2014

Some of the prayer shawls and baby blankets will be on display in the Experience Hall at Assembly, after which the shawls will be distributed to those in need. It is suggested that a small donation, if possible, be included with the prayer shawls or baby blankets to defray the cost of shipping to the various institutions and organizations.

Please use the link below to see more information about the prayer shawls and baby blankets.

We are on a journey and the challenge and joy of this Christian journey is to see and feel the heart of God.  We may find God within ourselves, with the people whom we encounter, and even in the face of our enemies.  God is at work.  God's heart beats in each of us.

This year of 2013 challenges us to grow in our spiritual life and in our awareness of social justice so that we can live the heart of God and walk the path of Jesus, sharing the struggles and abundance on life's journey.  Just as God worked through Jesus in biblical times, God works alongside the women and children of tomorrow.  Let us
celebrate God at work today by fulfilling the UMW Purpose.
