Prayers Woven Together

On Sunday, May 12, we used three art and prayer stations as guided mediations. Naming some simple pleasures, weaving our prayers together, and colorful reflection. I'm sharing a version of those stations for you to do on your own.

Let me have a faithful account of all that concerns you; I would know everything, be it ever so unfortunate. Perhaps by mingling my sighs with yours I may make your sufferings less, for it is said that all sorrows divided are made lighter.

— Héloïse d'Argenteuil, The Love Letters of Abelard and Heloise

Just as our lives are woven together our prayers are woven together too. We carry each other through the chaos and wonder of life. By seeing each other and allowing ourselves to be seen we can hold all of life together. When we bring and hold it all together we find ways to say, 

“You are not alone in this.” 

“I’ve got you.” 

And, “Can you hold this with me.” 

Using strips of fabric, bits of yarn or string, or daisy flowers as representations prayers, yours and others, knot them together as we mingle our sighs and prayers together.
