The St Francis College site is such an ideal one for contemplative prayer of all kinds and It has been lovely in the last couple of days to have a simple temporary labyrinth in the grounds of Old Bishopbourne, close to the Chapel of the Holy Spirit. This one was created by the School of Philosophy who also use the site and will be an encouragement to us as we explore this valuable contemplative tool in the days ahead. For labyrinths seem typically to emerge as spiritual aids at times of much societal and cultural change. Like the great labyrinths of European cathedrals in the middle ages they are a sign and means of personal and community renewal for us all. Why not pop by and try it out?
