A final labyrinth walk was planned for the Spiritual Journey workshop in Cambodia. Unfortunately, the labyrinth was removed from the floor to make room for another group. Due to the generosity of photographer Alain Kilar, each participant had a large photograph of the Chartres labyrinth which we used as finger labyrinths.
As their fingers and minds moved towards the center participants prayed, ““Holy Spirit, what do you most want me to remember from this week?”
While resting in the center those present prayed, “Holy Spirit, what do you want me to do differently in my life and relationship with you?
As their fingers moved back towards the doorway of the labyrinth, prayer continued, “What else do you want to say to me before this course ends?”
Reflection, both personal and in the group followed.
The labyrinth is a magnificent tool for prayer. It was my great privilege to witness how this design helped pastors and church leaders move deeply into the love of God.
