Raffling the Shalom Quilt: In Peace and Beauty I Will Sleep

Friends of peace & beauty –

One of the Psalms begins, "Of love & justice I will sing." Today, in the painful moments of working for peace despite a government determined on war, we need a psalm that goes –


And we have one. It is a psalm in cloth – a Shalom Quilt made of dozens of T-shirts that have called out in colorful and quirky words and images for peace, justice, and the healing of our wounded earth. It is 68" x 76".

The Shalom Quilt was "peaced together" by professional textile-artist Amy Smith of Blue Feet Studio.  We are raffling it off as a way of raising money for The Shalom Center, while bringing its beauty into someone's home.  In a regular sale it would cost $1800.

I guarantee you it will warm your bed, warm your heart, enlighten your eyes, and lift your spirit all at the same time -- and help to create warmth and compassion around the world by supporting The Shalom Center's work.

The raffle works this way: You buy tickets for $18 apiece.  Print out and use the coupon below, or send us the same information on your own note. 

You send a check to The Shalom Center, 6711 Lincoln Drive, Philadelphia PA 19119, earmarked "Quilt." We'll send you the raffle tickets.

The drawing will be held on July 4 --  in honor of those unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, may they soon be restored to the American people and all others.

With blessings of beauty & shalom --  Arthur
