By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path.

-Psalm 119:105

 

What parts of God’s word have been guiding you in this season?

 

Over the past few years I have spent more time in prayer through movement. 

 

One of the most meaningful prayer practices has been walking the labyrinth. This ancient pathway, on canvas in our Great Hall or on stone outdoors, has helped me center my connection with God. 

 

Last year in January, I spent two days in Charlotte on a retreat. This experience offered a deeper understanding of movement, art and prayer through the labyrinth. When making the plans to attend, I did not have any idea what would unfold in March with the pandemic and continue into this fall. 

 

Our children at JCPC have walked this prayer path in multiple experiences over the past few years. On Sunday as we prepared for my last Children’s Worship, Will and Chap helped me to create space in the Calvin Room for the labyrinth as one of our interactive prayer stations at the end. Will has helped set up the labyrinth in the Great Hall, in the church parking lot and in the Calvin Room listening to mentors and guides in our church community.

 

It was a blessing to me that he was eager to help set up the space for prayer on Sunday and then said, “Mom, we need to put candles in the center.” He found the battery operated ones in our cabinet and carefully placed them in the center for each child to have space for a pause and deep breath as they walked.

 

This village of faithful followers at JCPC have helped Will see and know God’s light on our path. You have nurtured him in each season of his faith so far.

 

As we continue down God’s path and answer the call to ministry in Savannah, we take each one of you with us in the ways you have helped us grow in our faith. Thank you for this blessing and we look forward to the ways we will continue to share God’s love in the world together.

Prayer for Today

Gracious God, Thank you for the gift of your word as a guide for our lives. Help us to be open to the ways we can share your Word and your love each day. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
