We come together to knit shawls and blankets, hats and sweaters,
But leave having knit together those parts of us which have begun to unravel.
We come together to weave in the unfinished ends of these, our expressions of love,
But leave having rewoven those parts of us which have become thread bare.
We come together to stitch a flower or a dove,
But leave having stitched together the very fabric of another’s life.
In connecting we create,
In connecting we sustain,
In connecting we repair,
In connecting we see God.
