Not too long ago I walked a labyrinth for the first time in my life. I had flirted with labyrinths for years, but my expectations were so high that I kept finding reasons not to walk one. I did not want to hurry. I did not want to share the labyrinth with anyone who might distract me. I did not want to be disappointed. I looked forward to walking a labyrinth so much that looking forward to it kept me from doing it for years.
Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World
I love Barbara Brown Taylor! She is an amazing preacher and was the founding rector of our parish, the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.
How wonderful and fortunate! I have read all her books, and have found them inspiring.
