The Prayer Shawl Chronicles: Stories of Unlikely Connections & Unexpected Gifts, by Cynthia Coe, is a collection of feel-good short stories that will make you laugh, cry, and think.
Knit with love, prayer shawls show someone you care about them, think about them, and hold them in prayer.
At least two great stories are bound together by every prayer shawl – the story of the crafter, and the story of the recipient. Though these two people are connected by one prayer shawl, they may have vastly different stories. The knitting craftsperson who spends hours making a prayer shawl and the man or woman who receives it may never meet or have anything in common. They may never cross each other’s paths. Yet their stories are linked together by prayer and a piece of knitting.
Each story in The Prayer Shawl Chronicles is a fictional tale of someone who finds herself in need of healing – and how that quest for healing ultimately helps someone else heal as well. Unexpected gifts appear, seemingly out of nowhere. Unlikely connections are made, sometimes across cultures and even continents, sometimes between people who might never imagine themselves connected in any way – just like the work of the Holy Spirit itself.
