For uses from Good Friday, Genesis and the Ten Commandments to calming stormy seas, this bold ministerial stole with vivid, cloudy, blue and back skies is a background for lightning bolts the length of the stole.  Stole is 5" x 106."  A young person was heard on Good Friday saying, "Best one yet."

There is a wonderful story behind the commissioning of the "Peace. Be Still" banner and stole.  It represents a calling to interim ministry:

Rev. Jeanne Loveless was to be installed into the Interim Guild of the Northern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ.  The installation was hosted by Jeanne's home congregation, Tapestry Ministries (DOC/AB) at the Ecumenical Center of Berkeley, 1798 Scenic Ave. 94709.  Jeanne has Ordained Ministerial Partnership Standing in the Bay Association of the Northern California Conference of the United Church of Christ and retain her standing as an Ordained Minister in the Northern California Nevada Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) at the same time!  Jeanne discerned a strong call to work with congregations that are in the intentional interim time, are in conflict and crisis, are in designated term situations, or have experienced breeches of trust. Jeanne is currently serving as Interim Senior Pastor of First Congregational Church of Oakland (United Church of Christ).

"Julie, the Names of God stole arrived today and it is truly beautiful.  Thank you so much getting it to me so quickly. An added plus is knowing how to care for the stole. I know Ellery will be very touched with your creativity. Our church will bless the stole this Sunday before it is shipped to our newly ordained pastor at his first church in Iowa.  Joan"

"Hi Julie, I received the "Names of God - Style 2" stole and wore it for the first time this past Sunday! So many people in our congregation noticed it, wanted to read all the names on it, and said it was beautiful (which it is!). This is the ONLY stole I have ever worn that fits properly at the back of the neck and over the shoulders and so it also doesn't 'flip' in the front. Thank you so much for creating such beauty! I will wear it with joy! And I will let my colleagues know about your business.
Blessings,  Donna Lee Merz"

Make a Joyful Noise 106" Stole, Back side is black
None in stock. If an item isn't in stock and you would like it, just tell us and we will have it ready for you within 10-14 days.
The background of the image (and reflecting the "all ye lands" theme) was painted after being inspired by the brilliant and beautiful strata in the hills in Death Valley (awful name for a beautiful place). The creation of this set was inspired by a worship service at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley (United Church of Christ), my California home church, where there was a wonderful Sunday hymn sing. (I receive a majority of my inspiration for new pieces from going to worship and actually listening to the sermons.)  

Ordering information is at the bottom of the page.

"Thank you so much for your help with our order. It arrived on Saturday 8/1. We gave the Joyful Noise stole to our pastor this afternoon. She LOVED it! The name of our in-church band is Joyful Noise, so it was super appropriate as she leaves us to have something to remember everyone by. She was so touched by the stole and its quality.  Blessings to you,  Tara Germano"

"Hello, and I thank you so very, very much!  The stole arrived on today and is gorgeous. My Lord!  Your patience is truly appreciated.  I cannot thank you enough!" Cassandra Clark

"Stained Glass" Butterfly Stole
Jewel toned butterfly clergy stole

You are so amazing Julie....These are the pictures from the whole Transition of Ordination and Installation Service held last Sunday at Kellogg Christian Church (DOC) in Kellogg, Iowa...a small little church filled with lots of heart.  It was a perfect service,,,  The stole was amazing out of the box, on a hangar, ironed, back on the hangar but it really took on life when it was placed around my neck and shoulders...Naomi DeHart presented it to me and Julie Gibson helped her. I had waited so long for the service and to wear the stole!!!!  Thank you so much.  It is back on a padded hangar until the New Year.  Peace and blessings...God has truly gifted you...Wendy  PS, I will get cards to match after my next payday!"

From Darcy Davis:  "The ordination ceremony was awesome!  Everyone commented on the beauty of my stole!  I felt like the belle of the ball!  ;-)  I was clicking off the name of your web site left and right!  Should have had some of your business cards with me.  The symbolism in my stole was so meaningful to so many people."

"Good Morning!    I received the stoles yesterday and they are beautiful!!!The Methodist cross looks great!!   I can not wait to give them to the 2 pastors involved...they will love  them-----Thank you! Diane"

The Story behind the Stole

In Cuyatlan, Mexico there is a Tortugario, or Turtle Sanctuary where they protect the eggs of baby sea turtles and then release them. We had the privilege of seeing one day old sea turtles when we were there and with the liturgical season being ordinary time it seemed like a wonderful idea to create this green stole with these beautiful baby sea turtles running into the ocean, and thus their baptism. It seemed appropriate that we should continually do the same.

We didn't get to see them be released but that is what the artist is for, huh!?

For an enlargement, right click and select view image or copy image URL and paste into the web address bar-depending on your operating system.


Use this stole for baptisms, sermons about water and/or baptism.

Use the suggested text or something of your own choosing at no additional cost.  Denomination logos or faith symbols are usually added at no cost.

We create our own art and print our own fabric.  
And check our Banner and Stole Index for other ocean themed stoles.

106" stoles will be shortened upon request-prior to placing your order.
