3.6.17 … “The Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool meant to awaken us to the deep rhythm that unites us to ourselves and to the Light that calls from within.”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2017 Lenten Labyrinth Walks (Walk 6/40), Wedgewood Church, Charlotte NC, 52 Words Every Christian Should Know:

Sights, sounds and musings … another free form day.

Totally overcast and damp breeze. The breeze and the Holy Spirit took my thoughts to the new movie The Shack. So I wondered how I would portray the Trinity. How would you?

Little birdhouse that I never noticed and later saw two robins, one atop the birdhouse clearly not meant for her.

Massive construction near major power lines; I’m not sure why someone would invest so much money right there on a busy street with electrical lines running in their front yard.

Massive oak tree.

Crunch, crunch, crunch – the pebble path is clearly not my favorite.

Red ant bed

Sounds of traffic at this busy intersection (Tyvola and Wedgewood)

52 Words Every Christian Should Know

Last week’s words were about God, this week’s words are about Scripture and include inspiration, infallibility, the Law, prophecy, interpretation and the Great Commandments. But today I will focus on the writer’s approach.

“I have written from a broadly evangelical perspective. My treatment is sensitive to areas where there are major differences of opinion, such as dispensational eschatology, Calvinism, Pentecostal issues, and the sacraments or ordinances. On the other hand, I affirm as a foundation the classic confessions of the churches (the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed) and the five pillars of the Reformation (salvation as taught in Scripture alone, by Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith alone, to the glory of God alone). If you relate positively to these beliefs and want to gain a better understanding of essential Christian terms, this book is for you.”

So I have to ask myself, do I relate positively to these beliefs? I must admit that I relate negatively to the introductory phrase “evangelical perspective,” but that is a visceral response and actually does not reflect what I have come to understand is the true meaning of the word. So I relate positively to the beliefs, but negatively to the box into which the author puts them. What do you think?

About labyrinths:

“The Labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool meant to awaken us to the deep rhythm that unites us to ourselves and to the Light that calls from within. Based on the circle, the universal symbol for unity and wholeness, the labyrinth sparks the human imagination and introduces it to the intuitive part of our nature. It allows us, in a very simple, fundamental way, to let go of present concerns and open ourselves to a quiet place of new thought.”

And I finish this walk with pebbles in my shoe …

Kith/kin, Davidson College, gifts: My sister began painting a few years ago. This painting of Davidson College was her graduation gift to Molly. Her paintings are from the heart.
