Re-imagining the Household of God 2015
Saturday, May 2, 2015 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This new event brings together the best elements of two previous diocesan events — Becoming the Household of God and Ministry Fair. Our theme is “Re-imagining the Household of God,” focusing on what it means to be the Household of God and how we reach out to meet the needs of God’s people beyond our doors. The keynote speaker, Tom Brackett, is missioner for church planting and ministry development for the Episcopal Church. Those who attended “Requiem or Renaissance” in December heard what an impressive and inspiring a speaker he is. Tom’s bio can be found at: http://www.collegeforbishops.org/assets/1145/brackett_bio.pdf

You are invited to the May 16th Craft-In at the Cathedral!
9 am – 1 pm
The Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Crowley Room (2nd Floor)
After an introductory time of prayer and contemplation, the workshop will continue with a brief discussion about color and fiber selection in relation to what we’ve learned about the needs of our Christmas Warmth Project recipients. There will then be time for knitting and crocheting, during which those who wish to can work on cowls that are particularly designed for men (pattern and guidance provided) or other items appropriate for the project. Later in the session, there will be a demonstration of the effects of over-dyeing, a useful approach for taking odd colors and bits of left over yarn and turning them into something unified and beautiful.
There will be large amounts of donated yarn available for you to work on and take home, and tea, coffee, water and light snacks will be available throughout the workshop.
Knitting and crocheting needles, hooks and other notions, if you have them. If not, please let us know and we’ll make sure to have extras available. Also, if you would like to bring a dish or treat to share, that would be great!
Please, please RSVP to Kathleen Baltman so that we can be fully prepared to meet your wishes and needs for this event.
Thank you – we hope to see you (and your friends, neighbors, relatives, etc.) there.
