Knitting poem by one of our friends!

is the creative language of Unity and International Collaboration.
According to the Book of Song, it began even before we were born!
For You created my inmost being.   You knit me together in my mother’s womb.                 Psalm 139:13 (NIV)
Uniting to KNIT
you knit to UNITE!
Knitting is a movement.
It is a movement
of our hands and our fingers
with our hearts
and our minds
with a vision
and a mission
to join and mend the lives of broken families
to intertwine the fabrics of health, wealth and society
to weave the threads of hope for the future
empowering women and girls
supporting men, boys and livelihood
and covering the little ones
with garments of love and care
with warmth and protection
with beauty and fashion
beginning with the weakest link
mothers and babies
securely joined together
from individuals to groups
from grassroots to world leaders
through frontiers and beyond borders
while preserving values and traditions
nurturing an amicable and safe space
promoting friendship and teamwork
in the home, community, city and country.
Catch the global vision:
Knit to UNITE
Unite to KNIT !!!
