  • Dreams and compassion on Pajama Sunday in Ipswich | Cradles to Crayons | The Giving Factory
    by one to read from a children s book As images from The Pajamas of My Dreams flashed on a large screen to their left they returned repeatedly to the book s refrain In the pajamas of my dreams each intoned I climb into bed pull the covers up tightly close my eyes And dream about what to be But this is a book with a striking twist at the end After listing a dozen exciting occupations it suddenly shifts to more immediate concerns to have a full belly to be toasty in well fitting pajamas to not feel threatened I dream the story concludes of being warm and safe in my bed at night The service it turns out was geared to lift awareness about those who are needy and homeless and to act upon it Congregants were asked to bring fresh pajamas to be donated to Cradles to Crayons a Brighton based nonprofit that provides essential items to low income and homeless children Rector Brad Clark read The Pajamas of My Dreams three years ago at the suggestion of a church member Its social message resonated with his belief in authenticity and seemed a natural fit for Ascension Memorial I thought jokingly if people are feeling themselves at home and come to church then why get dressed up he said Just come as you are How easy it would be to blend this excuse for a Pajama Sunday to support the charity Erik Lindahl hands a morning service leaflet to Charlotte Dodge at Ascension Memorial Church s third annual Pajama Sunday Pajamas author Laurie Collins and artist Margie Florini are still surprised that their creation published in 2013 by Millis based Three Bean Press inspires readers to take action Not many authors can make that claim Its core idea gestated in Collins s mind for about two years A Byfield resident and children s librarian first in Newbury and now Ipswich she said she knew through 15 years on the job what is on children s minds through their reading choices She pondered how to tactfully present her idea to young readers without being too preachy There are lots of lovely children s books about pajamas she said but none that give you the idea that you might have lovely pajamas but not everyone else does Finally she shared her manuscript with Florini an award winning professional artist and illustrator who has been a friend since their days at Beverly High School Florini now living in Danvers was hooked They devoted countless hours discussing the presentation Everything we did had a lot of thought behind it Florini said Florini chose the cut paper collage medium to give an overall 3 D effect To her the pages are suggestive of colorful quilts found on children s beds I felt each illustration was touchable soft and had to be studied carefully and would be the right fit to tell the story she said The illustrations took about 18 months to
