Walking a Labyrinth

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.

  1. 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.
