The World Seen Through the Lens of Faith


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

“If I can teach a woman whose brain has been fried by 25 years on drugs to knit, I can certainly teach you.” With those words to bolster my courage, I began my first knitting lesson. I hadn’t really planned to learn to knit or crochet, but the women at my church were starting a shawl ministry and I liked all the women in the group, and thus had to learn how to knit to be a member of this start-up. My instructor was an elderly woman who had spent many years working with the female inmates at Albion prison."
