On Tuesday afternoon (10th March), we welcomed Jean Hutchison, the Fife Coordinator of Project Linus UK. She gave a history of Project Linus which has been running for 20 years. She listed the charities and some of the individuals who have received a quilt or a blanket. It is not only charities which benefit, she also visits hospitals and maternity units.
Project Linus started in the U.S.A. and has spread all over the world and aims to give any child (0 - 16 years) who has suffered trauma, a bereavement, a disability whether mental or physical their own person blanket or quilt. The name Linus comes from the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, Linus is always seen with his ‘comfort blanket’, and the motto of Project Linus is ‘a hug in a blanket’.
The photographs show some of the quilts which have been donated. Jean collected another four quilts and two knitted blankets (see photographs) from our Craft Group and these will be distributed to local Fife charities.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic throughout the world, Easter is a bit low-key this year. To try to create some normality, Rev Christine has decorated the church with a few floral displays and has hung up the Easter pew-ends.
Photos show the displays, the church and Jane Legge’s Easter Garden.
At this time thanks must go to Rev Christine for working so hard composing the services, delivering the hard copies and sending them out by e-mail. She also sent out a new hymn for these extraordinary times, with many in isolation, called ‘This Easter Celebration’ which is sung to the tune ‘Aurelia’ which is usually played for ‘The Church’s One Foundation’.
Thanks also to Stuart Gray for his Holy Week reflections. Many have found his words to be inspirational and comforting at this time when all the news has been so negative.
