Love the fact that our little local church is so keen to help all ages experience God together. This morning we continued a series on spiritual growth through looking at a number of spiritual disciplines. This week we used the Labyrinth prayer experience as a church.
One of the exercises today involved everyone writing down a prayer on some special paper and then heading off into the Labyrinth. Once you got to the middle of the labyrinth there was a font with some water in that you placed your paper prayer into and it dissolved.
Then you were encouraged to write an attribute of God that you appreciated as an act of praise in chalk on the floor.
Then for your journey out of the labyrinth as you go on to face the world you are to take a psalm with you to meditate on.
All the ages took part today with some of us acting as guides for the travellers.
Well done to the team that put this together!
My 7 year old daughter had a great time, though her prayer did make me laugh…
“Please God please don’t let me get lost in the maze.”
