Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer, among other things can be difficult. The pain of loss is felt by many at this time of year and this service offers a sacred, gentle space to gather, remember, and comfort. We will have combination in-person and online streaming service with the in-person subject to the restrictions of congregating, including wearing a mask and social distancing. A Zoom link will be provided along with a copy of the bulletin.
Come and check out our roomful of beautiful, handwoven baskets from Ghana, Bangladesh and Guatemala; great to fill with homemade treats, towels or magazines.
Our beautiful coiled spiced trivet keeps your beverage, kettle or plate warm while releasing the scent of cinnamon and cloves, made from 100% hand-woven Guatemalan fabric.
Our colorful terracotta nativity scene brightens any home around Christmas and is a perfect faith-based decoration for any holiday festivities. Each set contains 8 figurines dressed in handwoven Guatemalan fabric with hand-painted faces, 4 hand-painted animals and a lovely natural terracotta plate on which to display them.
