Green Stockings Craft & Design

Worship Resources for Shawl Ministries, Knitters, and Crafters

I am lucky to have become an active member of my local Unitarian Universalist congregation: The Unitarian Church of Montreal

We have a knitting & crafting group that meets twice a month for a spiritual & social gathering, and I launched this group with a service centered around the idea of knitting as a spiritual discipline which unites the mind, the heart and the body.

Below is a list of resources from our service:

Reflection: “Mind, Heart & Body: The Spirituality of Handwork”

Meditation: “A Meditation for Our Hands”

Chalice Lighting: A Chalice Lighting for a Rainy Day
