The Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers, FL hosted a vigil July 30th to remember and pray for the Knoxville churches of Tennessee Valley and Westside. During the service we conducted a ceremony during which we lit candles and inscribed or drew our hopes and prayers for the churches on a piece of decorative paper.

I have since compiled these prayers and wishes into a book that I have sent to Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church. We also took a special offering and our generosity that evening will add $720.10 to the Knoxville Relief Fund.

Here are pictures of the book I put together & sent. Dear scrap booking enthusiasts, I shall need your help if I am ever to do this again!
