4.4.14 … Yet Also: Be Still … For Healing Most … Likely Whispers …

“Solvitur  Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2014 Lenten labyrinth walks,   The Jack Matney Memorial Labyrinth Courtyard/Presbyterian Hospital  – Charlotte (27/40):
I was at the Novant Outpatient Surgery Center today with a family member, so I knew where I would be walking today.

A few observations about this labyrinth:
* the labrinth is a full Chartres and has the correct number of petals, 6, in the center.

*there is a prayer wall with niches for people to insert a writtne prayer.

On the wall is this:
Yet Also: Be Still … For Healing Most … Likely Whispers.
I searched the quote and could not find the basis.  I really like it because it relates to my favorite Psalm.
Be still and know that I am God. – Psalm 46:10
*Also on the Prayer wall are these two series of words, painted on concrete one series on top of the other:
giving, intercession, comfession, release, thanksgiving, intercession, confession, release, thanks –
joy, love, acceptance, peace, joy, love, acceptance, peace , joy, love, acceptance, peace
And the walk …

I also discovered an area with information about this labyrinth and labyrinths in general.

The first project, a remembrance wall, is an artfully sculptured, tiled painting that will provide a special way to acknowledge and remember loved ones. Designed and created by artist Tom Schulz, the remembrance wall will have 400 tiles of varying colors from earth to sky. Presbyterian Hospice will soon begin taking $1,000 donations for each tile in memory or honor of loved ones, and this remembrance opportunity is open to anyone in the community.

And here is some additional info about this labyrinth:

Back to the garden, I was taken with the prayer wall and its theme:  “Yet also be still, for healing most likely whispers”

Prayer Wall-Presbyterian Hospital, Charlotte

Prayers and prayer requests may be inserted into the openings in the wall.  I thought about what a good feeling a person could have while sharing their needs or prayers with others in the garden.

A diverse prayer wall ministry, which includes social workers, bereavement counselors, and chaplains, has organically emerged to act as stewards – gathering up prayer concerns and taking them (anonymously) into the greater community.

Making them concrete.
