In the bleak midwinter… here is a place to leave your prayers of lament. During the month of January you are invited to visit the trees that line the Promenade drive downtown. There you may select a cloth strip from the metal container and tie it to a branch while offering a prayer of loss, grief or pain. This is similar to praying while tying a quilt for a loved one. Know that God hears you, sees you and can lead you from lament into the light of LOVE. The materials for the Trees of Laments will remain til the end of January.
