3.31.13 … Christ is risen, indeed! …

t”Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2013 Lenten labyrinth walks, Avondale Presbyterian Church – Charlotte NC:

Rain … actually heavy rain. But the church was ready … and the chairs were set up under the covered entrance to the fellowship hall with a straight on view of the columbarium in the Sacred Garden. A very nice plan b.

The Highland Piper crossed our path in full regalia … where did he go?
Before the service began, the ministers introduced themselves and shook hands as they walked out to the front.
The Highland piper played “Amazing Grace.”

At this sunrise service the word I heard over and over was “creation.” From the scripture that was read … Mark 16: 15:
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
And then I heard repeatedly, “Christ is risen!.”
Dr. John Earl asked us to focus on “sounds,” to listen to creation, to hear and see things in creation beginning with resurrected Christ. And he concluded, ” Creation is laughing. In every cemetery, creation is laughing. Listen to the laughter you find in creation.” (paraphrased :))
The service concluded with another bagpipe tune … and Dr. Earl encouraged us to walk the Garden while he was still playing. I, of course, walked the labyrinth!
After I walked, Rev. Jane Summey Mullennix called me over to share coffee. It was great fun to talk with her about the service and labyrinths!
Christ is risen, indeed!
