• Labyrinths…

    ...can be thought of as symbolic forms of pilgrimage; people can walk the path, ascending toward salvation or enlightenment. Many people could not afford to travel to holy sites and lands, so labyrinths and prayer substituted for such travel. Later, the religious significance of labyrinths faded, and they served primarily for entertainment, though recently their spiritual aspect has seen a resurgence. Many newly made labyrinths exist today, in churches and parks. Labyrinths are used by modern mystics to help achieve a contemplative state. Walking among the turnings, one loses track of direction and of the outside world, and thus quiets his mind. The result is a relaxed mental attitude, free of internal dialog. This is a form of meditation. Many people believe that meditation has health benefits as well as spiritual benefits.

Labyrinth Quotes

“A sign of God is that we are led
to a place we did not intend to go.”
-anonymous

“…the kingdom of God is within you.”
– Jesus

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
– T. S. Elliot

I am the Door;
anyone who enters in through Me will live.
He will come in and he will go out freely,
and will find pasture.
– Jesus

  1. David,

    We so much enjoyed hearing of yours and Sunan’s ministry in Montreal last night. I was touched by your sincerity, calling and passion. Thank you for the comtemplative mediatation at the close of the service. I shall treasure those moments we spent thinking about Peace for many months to come.

    I am so glad that you were able to come to South Roebuck. Please keep in touch and let us know how we can help.

    Thank you again for what you are doing to touch lives as you live out your journey in Canada.

    Blessings to all of you,

    Joyfully,

    Mark
