Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2014 Lenten Labyrinth Walks, Myers Park Baptist Church – Charlotte NC (22/40):

It’s cool and you can actually hear the wind rushing through the buildings … whistling through the buildings.  I also hear the bell ringing 3 o’clock at Queens University, honking horns, and a few birds singing in the distance.

Although this sky is mostly blue, there is no sunshine on the labyrinth.  It is all in the shade.  I look up and there is still no budding of the tall trees, oaks, etc. It seems late this year.  There are sticks on the labyrinth.So now I will walk … I am wearing my plastic shoes 🙂

i ponder one of my favorites … Be still, know that I am God.

But to what end are we to “be still,” “let go,” “surrender,” and even to “die to ourselves”? In Hebrew grammar, the emphasis of coordinate imperatives (“be still!” and “know!”) is on the second imperative. In other words, we surrender in order to know that God is in control as Ribbono Shel Olam – the Master of the Universe. We “let go” in order to objectively know the saving power of God in our lives. We give up trusting in ourselves and our own designs in order to experience the glory of God’s all-sufficiency (Ex 14:14).
