Brechin United Church has an active Prayer Shawl Mininstry.  An industrious group of knitters and crocheters keep the basket at Brechin full of prayer shawls, which are available to be gifted to people in need of a caring and supporting embrace.  The prayer shawls are for everyone to receive and everyone to hand out when a need is identified to wrap someone in prayer and God's love.  If you wish to gift someone with a prayer shawl simply follow the guidelines above the basket.  There are cards to accompany the shawl.  Taking the time to select and deliver a prayer shawl to someone who is in need of tender care and the warmth of embrace that the shawl can give is engaging in a ministry of compassion and love as Christ Jesus expressed it.  Thank you to the knitters and to the gifters for supporting this important ministry.
