This week on May 11th, I will be back in Market Square in Portsmouth, NH. It has been several months since I have been there to read the messages of hope and peace that I gather for the Woven Voices Project.
I have about 200 messages that I collected during my recent travels to South Africa, St. Helena and Barbados. I hope that you will join me to read and/or simply listen and witness these personal prayers.
After these messages have been read on Wednesday they will come back here to my stdio and be woven into prayer flags.
I am in need of weavers too! No experience necessary to weave, just call/email me and we will set up a date/time for you to come. I ask for only a two hour commitment.
After the flags are woven, I will send them out to the world. At this point there are over 500 flags flying from East to West and from North to South.
There are even some prayer flags that are traveling on sail boats!
My friends Duncan and Irene aboard “Moose” sailed near us from South Africa to St. Helena. They had a grueling passage as their auto-pilot stopped working only a few days out from Simonstown. They hand steered for 11 days, arriving in St. Helena exhausted. What heroes! Look closely and you can see the prayer flag still flies high after over 1400 miles at sea.
So if you are able and interested, please join me Wednesday at noon. I so appreciate everyone’s support of this global peace project.
Peace ~ Sarah
