Prayer TreeWritten by Carole Cox
The Christmas tree outside church was bedecked with prayers, in the form of ribbons, over the festive period. It was lovely to see the number of ribbons increasing as we walked past.
On twelfth night, the Christmas tree came down and the prayer tree resumed its place in our front garden. The 36 ribbons and one bauble representing the prayers and thoughts of our local community were moved over from the Christmas tree. When passing, we have seen people in the front garden looking at our prayer trees – a lovely way to invite our community into our church.
The prayer tree is there for all to share and everyone is welcome to add a ribbon to represent their hopes and prayers.
