A special invitation is extended to Disciples that will allow them to become part of General Assembly worship even before the 2011 Assembly in Nashville, Tenn., begins. Disciples are asked to make stoles for the Assembly, whose theme is "Tell It!" and which takes place July 9-13. Disciples and/or their congregations can make the stoles, which will be worn by Assembly leaders, musicians, and others.
"I write to extend to you a special invitation to participate in General Assembly worship, by creating stoles that will be worn by everyone from our general minister and president to the tiniest youth choir member," said Patricia R. Case, program and marketing director for the General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). To find out how to become involved in the "Tell It!" Stoles Project, go to: www.disciples.org/GeneralAssembly/AssemblyStoles/tabid/800/Default.aspx
