Faith Beautifully Crafted

I try to make sense of life. I try to keep myself open to people and to laughter and to love and to have faith.

Stacey Trapani is teaming up with Anne Boyd to provide a third opportunity for us to tap into our creativity and faith this spring!

Join us on Tuesday, June 6 from 6:30 pm-8:30pm as we craft our own individualized and meaningful set of prayer beads. Like rosaries, a string of prayer beads serves as touch points while we pray with different stones and pieces having different meanings.

“Beads have been used as tools for spiritual practice for millennia and across multiple faith traditions, drawing seekers closer to the Divine with each bead touched and prayer offered. Some of the commonly recognized prayer beads being mala beads, used by Buddhists and Hindus, and rosaries, used by Catholics. In fact, at least in the English language, the words “bead” and “prayer” are connected—the word “bead” comes from the anglo-saxon bede, meaning prayer. Even the Desert Mothers and Fathers used a tangible object similar in shape to a bead as a vehicle for prayer, carrying pebbles in their pockets and dropping them as each prayer was released.”
