Prayerful Stitches - PW

Prayerful Stitches formed in February 2010 as a way for “stitchers” of all kinds (knitting, crocheting, quilting, and sewing) to gather together to create shawls, lap robes, and quilts for those in need of comfort.  As the group will mark their third anniversary next month, they celebrate having created and distributed more than 150 shawls, quilts, and lap robes!

These gifts have not only been given to those in our own NWPC family during times of illness, grief, and celebration, but they have also been sent to those in other areas including Indiana, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, Maine, and Prince Edward Island.

The group, which typically meets at 4:30pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month in the church library, welcomes stitchers of all skill levels to join them as they continue in their ministry.  Current Stitchers include:  Phyllis Moulton, Anna Jo Patton, Carolina Finley, Martha Nichols, Janet Ashley, Betty Thompson, Margie Edgerton, Sue Barr, Nancy Ricketts, and Donna McNeil.

For more information or if you know  someone (anyone!) who is in need of some extra comfort and would like a shawl or quilt from the Prayerful Stitches, please contact Phyllis Moulton or the church office at 667-1288.

Friday Reflections – Running Our Race

Running Our Race 
by Caroline Czerkawski

 

“let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us….

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,    

the author and perfecter of our faith…” Hebrews 12:1-2

 During the past few weeks, my family has been mesmerized by the London Olympics. We’ve enjoyed every moment of it…….the various events, the athletes’ stories, the post-event interviews and the extra coverage on the Today Show.

Like the rest of the nation, we were captivated by the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team as they competed. It was hard to imagine how the gymnnasts could propel themselves through the air, flipping and turning.  We were humbled by Claressa Shields’  story. She is the 17 year old  boxer from Flint, Mich. who won the gold medal in women’s boxing despite very difficult circumstances.

Every athlete, when interviewed, said something similar, “All our hard work and perseverance paid off.”  Ryan Lochte, who won numerous medals in swimming, said on the Today Show that he had been in the pool every day for four years.

Although none of us are Olympic athletes, in Hebrews 12:1 God calls us to run the individual “races” that He has planned for us…….and not just run them, but run them with perseverance.  The Christian life, our “race,” is to be pursued and trained for, just as an Olympic athlete pursues and trains for a medal. And when the going gets tough,  we shouldn’t quit; we are to look to Jesus as our model.

We are blessed to have such a wonderful support system here at North Wilkesboro Presbyterian Church. When you feel like giving up your “race,” there is always someone to give you love and encouragement to keep going.

 We must remember that the Christian life is one of endurance; this race is a 26.2 mile marathon not the 100 meter sprint!
