Prayer for a Labyrinth Walk

By Jean Sonnenberg

Bon Secours Labyrinth, Marriottsville, MD – by permission

O God of many paths, I stand before this labyrinth today, metaphor of my journey to you.  In the Western world, I have been taught that “the shortest distance between two points is a straight line,” and being an impatient person, I am uncomfortable with waiting.  I have often modeled my journey to you on the straight line.  But you, God of infinite patience, have shown me that there is another path, a curved path.  On this path, my anticipation is heightened as I approach the center, only to be led out again to the periphery.  But this path more closely resembles life itself.  On this path, if I just put one foot in front of the other, it may seem at times as if I am not approaching my goal, while in fact, I am drawing closer all the time.  But you are a God of surprises and mystery, and I don’t control the path.  The labyrinth is a symbol of my surrender to mystery, trusting, not knowing for certain, that the path which curves in and out again ultimately leads to the Center, which is You.

A Celebration of the Life of Nancy Holt – Saturday, Aug. 12

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

It is with very deep sadness that I convey the news that Nancy Holt, longtime Holy Trinity parishioner, teacher, sister, grandmother, mother, wife, and friend died very early this morning.

There will be a celebration of Nancy’s life at Holy Trinity this coming Saturday, August 12th at 3pm with a reception following.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that memorials be made to Holy Trinity (1601 Raeford Road, Fayetteville NC 28305). Additionally, we are asking for finger foods for the reception, as we expect a great number of people to be in attendance. If you are willing/able to bring finger foods, please RSVP to Childcare will be available for the worship service and reception.

I ask your prayers for Nancy and for the entire Holt family. Holy Trinity is a community that holds one another up, even when the eternal hope of resurrection appears beyond comprehension. I ask your prayers and presence on Saturday, as we celebrate a beautiful and wonderful woman who is now with God.
