The first stole repeated the colors in the weft, making the “Canon 18 Tartan” pattern. This second stole is in plain weave, with a lighter weight gold colored thread for the weft.

All these Sacramental Equality stoles are a one-of-a-kind design, so you will never see another clergyperson wearing the same stole as you! All are 100% cotton, gently washable.

Marriage Equality Tartan Stole“Canon 18 Tartan” Marriage Equality Stole  — $125.00

This summer the General Convention of the Episcopal Church amended Canon 18, its Marriage Canon, to define Marriage as between two people, in keeping with the earlier decision of the United States Supreme Court. Except in a handful of Dioceses where Diocesan Bishops will be allowed to dissent as long as they are in office, Marriage Equality is now a reality in the Episcopal Church.

To mark this equality milestone in the life of the Church, Ephods & Pomegranates is producing our “Canon 18 Tartan Stole.”

6″ wide, 8.5′ long, including 3″ fringes.  100% washable mercerized cotton.

The first one is about to come off the loom.  These will vary in design, each being one-of-a-kind.  Watch this space for availability and pricing.

Sewanee/Lenten Stole – $75.00

6″ wide, 8.5′ long including 3″ fringes.  100% washable mercerized cotton.  Please allow 4 weeks for delivery.

Sold lent bLUEPurple and Black represent the Penitence, Passion and Death of the Lenten journey.

Green is for life, which is what it is all for, and the greening of the world about us in springtime. (The word Lent comes from the Anglo-Saxon Lencten, or Lengthen, because Spring is the time of the lengthening of days, and the appearance of new, green life.)

Gold is for the Resurrection, the promise of which is always present at the Core of it all.

Why “Holistic”? Because there is more to Lent than just, well, Lent. Lent takes place within the full context of the story of Salvation. These colors in the warp lie beneath a weft of much lighter Purple, or Lavender, to remind us that even in Lent the joy of the Good News brightens our hearts and lightens our path. To remind us that God brings wholeness out of our brokenness, the weave pattern is called Broken Twill.

But why weave a Lenten stole in the middle of July, with nearly a year to go before lent rolls around again? Sometimes the most important thing in weaving is practicality. Remember a while back when we had to remove and rewind the warp for the Morgan’s Steep Tartan scarf? (It was finally completely a bit ago – see an earlier post.) The warp suffered a good bit of damage in the process and yielded only one scarf. This is a remnant of that warp, minus 12 threads on both sides that broken in the process. What to so with a stole-width warp? Weave a stole!

But this is more than only a Lenten stole. With the warp colors for our Morgan’s Steep Tartan, and the added purple, it is manifestly a Sewanee Stole, suitable for use by any Sewanee-grad cleric at any time of the year.
