300 Prayer Bracelets Still Needed for Assembly

The Discernment Team seeks to engage women, men, children, youth and young adults in a prayerful and creative process as we seek God’s direction as we select a new Bishop for our Synod.

“Come, Holy Spirit!” is the theme for this process. We would like everyone who is interested and willing to consider creating bracelets to be worn by delegates at the Synod Assembly May 4-5 in Franconia.

These bracelets need to be sizable so that they can be tied or adjusted to fit the wrists of all people. The bracelets can be made of beads, fabric, printed on, leather, crocheted, quilted, knitted, etc. They should be at least 10 inches long to accommodate all sizes.

Those choosing to participate in this way should be reminded that while making these bracelets they should be praying together and/or individually that God will lead us, speak to us and give us counsel who our next Bishop will be.
