ANNOUNCEMENTS

Advent Labyrinth Walk

You are invited to begin the Advent season on Sunday, December 3rd with a directed Mary and Joseph Walk to Bethlehem on an indoor canvas labyrinth path.  The facilitator will be Laurie Povey Crawford and Dottie Villesvik.  Due to the size of the Labyrinth, this will be held down in Stocker Hall.


The three-fold walk begins in prayer for the birth of the Christ child.


Walking inward on the path is a shedding of our distractions and the business of the season.  We will focus on the turns with the inward prayers that prepare our bodies and spirits for the expectations that come with the walking to Bethlehem.


Reaching the center we gather to receive the blessings that God has for us. We will ponder the scripture and share insights as they come to us with each other.


Walking out we return on the same path as we came in. This time in renewal we carry with us the blessings of the Advent season ahead.  Each turn opens our hearts and eyes to be mindful of the needs of others. We discover new ways to be a blessing of the Holy Spirit to others as we turn to find new directions for our Christian lives in the world.


Each participant will be encouraged to feel free to walk silently among the candles and view the materials available with open hearts.  There will be time to write your message for others, to pray for others coming out of the walk and offer your invitations for others to join in sharing scriptural messages.


Come as individuals or as families.
