“There’s power in the medium of quilting. It takes that which is torn apart and brings it into
a newly formed wholeness that can convey beauty and depth that is powerful and transformative.”

PRAYERS IN THREAD
Bless these quilts, O Lord,
The work of human hands.
Give them life.
Each stitch, O Lord
Carries the intention of our hearts.
Give them breath.
Breathe life into their purpose, Lord.
Fill them full with our desire for justice.
For if they breathe
they will speak,
Telling their story of pain,
That we might be rescued by love
And together, heal.
Rev. Mark Koyama
