Seems we’re all going around in circles these days. Or caught in a maze of emotions. Or we feel like we’re in a labyrinth, with no way back to normal.
So it was fitting that last week’s Photo Challenge showed the labyrinth on the front lawn of Saugatuck Congregational Church. It’s actually a calming spot, a place to wander, de-stress and focus.
Saugatuck’s labyrinth spans 50 feet, lined with over 1,500 bricks. Its 7 rings are designed to “traverse the material world through to the realm of higher consciousness.” Renowned dowser Marty Cain helped determine the optimal location of the rings, spine and entrance.
The labyrinth was part of church member and then-Staples High School student Liam Borner’s Eagle Scout project. He got help from various parishioners, and pastor Alison Patton. Installation was done by members and friends of the church. Click here for last week’s photo; click here for more info on the labyrinth.
Morley Boyd, Iain Bruce, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Susan Iseman, Lois Himes and Katherine Ross all knew exactly where Lee Scharfstein’s photo was — and what it showed.
