12.21.17 … “God’s love is the container in which we are privileged to live. It is neither gilded nor padded – it never promises that we will not suffer or know pain. But it is rock solid and watertight.”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2017 Advent Labyrinth Walks, Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk, Avondale Presbyterian Church – Charlotte NC, Service of Wholeness and Healing at First Presbyterian Church – Charlotte NC:

It is a lovely night for labyrinth walk. And there is a sliver of a moon in the sky. And that makes it all the darker for a walk on this winter solstice 2017.

As I approach the sacred garden, I hear shouts from the gym and the sounds of basketballs in motion. I smile, I used to watch my sons play church league ball.

The labyrinth is very well lit tonight. Were they expecting me?

I walk up the hill to get a view of the city before I walk and then I smile at the thin crescent moon. While I walk, I amuse myself looking at my shadow.

Afterward I head downtown to my home church. The Service of Wholeness and Healing is one of my favorite services all year. I can’t imagine not lighting a candle. Definitely a cathartic event.

Thank you, Katherine for a meaningful service, and thank you, Pen, for providing me with a quote:

“God’s love is the container in which we are privileged to live. It is neither gilded nor padded – it never promises that we will not suffer or know pain. But it is rock solid and watertight.” – The Rev. Katherine Cooke Kerr
