Fabric Of Faith

"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

This wonderful little book was a gift, given to me by the dear ladies of the Quilt Ministry at our church; the hearts full of grace and souls generated by love that I work with each and every Thursday morning. This book is loaded with wonderful quotes (see above) in the margins, fantastic quilt photography and lots of inspirational stories from quilt recipients. There are also chapters on how-to's for quilt ministries just getting started and tips for record keeping and improving orgainization. It's a treasure of a book, all 116 pages. I am so deeply appreciative. Check it out if you have the opportunity, I promise it will be a challenge to put it down.

Wow, what a God-sent. Some of our ladies have been wanting to start a prayer quilt ministry...thanks so much for telling me about the book. I am going to order it.

Started new meds today, so I'm hoping all will be well.

Thank you so much for the prayers.

I live in Wanganui, New Zealand. This is a small provincial city of about 44 000 people. Our National Symposium this year is in Palmerston North which is a city of about 90 000 (approx) people which is 50 minutes drive from here. My 3 friends and I are sharing a motel and staying for 5 nights. We expect to have a ball. It is my first ever Symposium so I am a newbie to this. I am doing one 3-day class by Jenny Bowker of Australia (and Cairo). We are doing a triptych. It will be very challenging for me 'cos we are designing our own patterns and my drawing skills are good with lines, 45 and 90 degree angles but hopeless with anything else. But I guess that is why we take these classes, to stretch us!

Thanks for sharing that book. I will be adding that to my wish list.
