bushveld labyrinth

July 4, 2008

Well, we finished our labyrinth, and walked it for the first time yesterday afternoon. It was kind of cool to see how different people go there on their own today to walk the labyrinth. One girl doing her daily Bible study while in the middle. In the coming week we will be introducing some of the school kids to the labyrinth, will see how this go down for Afrikaans Reformed youth.

A while into building the labyrinth we realised we are building on a rubish dump. So we cleaned up a rubish dump to make place for the labyrinth. Maybe this is something of what we are trying to do as followers of Jesus. To clean out the rubish in the world in order to create places where people can find peace, harmony, and connect with transcendence.

Read the rest of the entry to see some photo’s of what we did and how the labyrinth look…
