10.7.15 … “Labyrinths are not merely art forms, decorative patterns or community events. They are transformative vehicles that integrate the energies of the Earth and the Cosmic Realm. Owning a Labyrinth is a commitment to Mother Earth, a sharing of love energy. Marty is convinced: In order to remain transformative, a labyrinth must be walked. In order for human beings to remain whole, we must learn to integrate our own growth path with the vital Life Force within Nature.”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2015 Labyrinth Walks,

South Tryon Community Church:

RIP … I knew it might happen, but I just kept hoping the community would embrace this Boy Scout Eagle Project labyrinth. I don’t know for sure that it will never return, the bricks are stacked over in the corner and it could be re-created. But I wonder if the energy is gone.

I had search earlier today for some information on the use of labyrinths in South Africa. I remembered from a lecture several years ago that in South Africa in particular they were used for the purpose of healing and sharing space. While searching for that information, I stumbled across this:

“Labyrinths are not merely art forms, decorative patterns or community events. They are transformative vehicles that integrate the energies of the Earth and the Cosmic Realm. Owning a Labyrinth is a commitment to Mother Earth, a sharing of love energy. Marty is convinced: In order to remain transformative, a labyrinth must be walked. In order for human beings to remain whole, we must learn to integrate our own growth path with the vital Life Force within Nature.”

I’m not saying I agree about it with everything in this person’s comment, but there is something special about a labyrinth and the energy that gets placed there when it is used and shared. I hated to seethat energy disappear into a pile in the corner.

After I left the labyrinth space, I looked up and I saw one of those cars that was completely covered in advertising. I was a little taken back by the name when I read the next line:

“Paws whiskers and wags – a pet crematory”

It was the “… and wags” that got me.

I decided that since I needed to stay in the downtown area that I would go to Wednesday Connect at my church. I was encouraged by Lisa Dillard to listen to Dr. Natalie Connor, speak on History of Social Welfare and Inequality in America (Dr. Natalie Conner, FPC Parish Social Worker will help us understand how faith and charity intersect; explore the evolution of the myths of the “Welfare Queen” and “Toxic Charity”, and examine choices and commitments to move forward as a community.)

Thank you Lisa Dillard for encouraging me to go. It was the right place for me to be tonight.

I have a lot of thoughts racing in my mind …
