“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2015 Labyrinth Walks, Sardis Baptist – Charlotte NC, We Walk Together Charlotte:
I love it when my worlds collide. Today on the 18th We Walk Together Charlotte, I introduced some new friends to labyrinths.
But first we had another wonderful inspirational reading from Gail:
“As we stand here in the parking lot of a Baptist church, let’s think for a moment about one of the things that baptist churches consider very important: baptism, specifically in many cases, baptism by immersion – which means your whole body goes under the water. As we walk together this morning, let’s talk about things we often need to do or learn by immersion. The first example that comes to mind for me is language learning. You have to put yourself in a place and situation where the only language you can use is the target language, the one you are trying to learn. Are there situations in our lives that force us to learn by immersion? For example, intimate relationships or parenting. Perhaps certain jobs. Perhaps an unwanted diagnosis or a natural disaster or some other challenging circumstance. There’s no escape – you just have to jump in and deal with it, as hard as it may be. What are some of the good and not-so-good life lessons you have learned through baptism by immersion?”
Our walk started/ended at Providence Baptist Church and we walked to Sardis Baptist Church and back (3 miles roundtrip).
A great walk with great people on a beautiful day!!
And I learned something new … Did you know that Fitz attached to a name means “bastard of”? That makes Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pride and Prejudice an even funnier name. And I thought it sounded snobby!! (I have a cat named Fitzwilliam Darcy; he came from the animal shelter.)
