Creative Arts Day

At our church, we have a day every year called "Creative Arts Day." This year, in addition to some performing arts, I put out a display of some of my knitting projects. I had one sweater, and a photo of another, some hats, dischoths, scarves, etc. It was pretty fun. I usually knit in church, so it was fun to show off some of the projects.

Here are a couple of examples:

Guys, thanks for showing

Guys, thanks for showing your viewers so much about yourselves. It's so good for our community when we stand up and be counted as open, out, real people [oh my word and the word is "trite." Is Hallmark hiring?]

Until a couple of years ago I was a Roman Catholic -- Franciscan persuasion. I'd served on many parish ministries, the last of which was our Adult Faith Formation Committee. Imagine. And I was out and not at all quiet about it. And the support/approval/whatever-you-want-to-call-it that I got was so positive and encouraging. It can work, as it certainly is working for you.

Funny thing, tough, is that I volunteered to catalogue the parish's 3,000 volume library. While doing so, I read a ton a theology-related works. Result: as soon as I completed the 2-year project, I became an "open, out, real people" atheist.

Regards, Jerry

We did the same at our

We did the same at our church. It was mostly visual arts (paintings, drawings, and the like) but a friend asked me to put in some of my wife's and my knit and crochet projects. They were a hit. I even sold a scarf to my friend.
