Filed under: Would Jesus Discriminate?
The heart of the labyrinth beckons us to dwell with our endings. “It is finished”, Jesus said, acknowledging his own. On this holy day, we are one with Jesus, and have a unique opportunity like those gathered beneath his cross, to grieve his death.
In her guide, “The Sacred Path Companion”, Lauren Artress says, “in the labyrinth the veil between the worlds is thin. As odd as it may sound, you can carry on a conversation with a loved one in the labyrinth. You may even feel their presence with you there. You may express your love, your relief that their suffering is over, and bid this person good-bye.”
Take a moment in this day, bow in prayer, and give your spirit to the One who in death became one with us.
On this Good Friday, we lift these congregations and their communities in prayer. We pray for their ministries and their efforts through Would Jesus Discriminate? to reveal God’s inclusive, all-embracing love:

God of Endings,
Dwell with us as we
Hold us as we pray.
