« Advent: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

This New Year's Eve (Friday, December 31, 2010) the labyrinth at Calvary Church will be open to the public from 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Many walkers find the experience to be a peaceful and moving one. The sanctuary is lit by candles and the light from six Christmas trees lining the perimeter of the labyrinth. Prayerful music plays quietly in the background. A long-time tradition, the "burning bowl", will be available. A single candle sits in the center of a sand-lined bowl with slips of paper and pens & pencils nearby. Some people find it helpful to let go of old ideas, thoughts, habits, etc., by writing them down and burning them at the bowl, leaving room for new ones to come into their lives.
