Walking the Labyrinth at Twilight

In God we live and have our being Acts 17:28

We gather quietly at the labyrinth

each holding a tiny light

the light of each heart

the light of each silent prayer.

The sun is just setting

and our shadows move silently

over the curving paths.

The walk is illuminated by small lights

making the labyrinth look like

a constellation of stars

mirrored on the ground.

As we walk silently

no bird is singing

no cars are honking

and I feel my heart beating.

As we walk we pass one another

each of us lost in his own thoughts and


The winding path makes me think

of the turns and twists of my life

the joys and sadness of a long life.

As we approach the center

friends may be collecting

open to receive the guidance

and peace of God.

Now we are silent on the path out

knowing we are changed

by that walk of Peace in the twilight.
