[Episcopal News Service] Through the Seamen’s Church Institute’s Christmas at Sea program, volunteers knit garments and distribute gifts to mariners who are far away from home during the holidays. The gift consists of a handknit garment, a personal letter, and information on SCI’s services for mariners. SCI also includes several useful items like hand lotion, lip balm, and toothbrushes — things difficult to come by when working long stretches on the water.
