My friend Sue Joiner is a pastor who thinks this way too, so she commissioned me to make a green stole that she'll wear while leading worship.
Without a doubt, Sue
will share years of love and thoughtful sermons, wrapped in the colors and good news of the miracles all around us every day. (See the Pentecost Stole I made for Sue's installation.)
Red from Sue Joiner's
Pentecost Stole, green from the Passion of the Earth project, etc.
Congratulations to my dear friend, Rev. Sue Joiner
, on her
installation as Pastor of First Congregational UCC Church of Albuquerque
passionate about community, ministry, and her
favorite Christian church holiday, Pentecost.
To honor these sacred occasions and also the 20th anniversary of her
commissioned me to create this fabric clergy stole.
Special thanks to all those who collaborated in this huge endeavor, especially: Sue Joiner
, Holly Bahn, Patricia Campbell Carlson, Marianne Lewis, Bonnie Rich, Kay Veal, Jan Gough, the 55 mandala artists, and our host workshop communities: Norbertine Community Abbey (Albuquerque), St Paul Lutheran Church (Albuquerque), St Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church
(Albuquerque), and First Presbyterian Church (Santa Fe).
Big thanks to my partner, Holly, whose latest in a long string of support included helping track down the missing proofs, picking up the replacement package, and waiting until I got home to open it with me. Special thanks also to dear friend Sue Joiner who believed in this printing project from the beginning, cheering me along at key moments.
