The Manitou Intentional Learning Committee (MILC) in Sudbury shares the following resources for Pentecost Sunday – these are activities you can do at home.
Labyrinth Walks for Pentecost
This Sunday is Pentecost, and we thought that while we are still physically apart and seeking ways to nurture our spirits, you might be interested in more labyrinth activities.
Here are three suggestions:
- The following link takes you to a flame shaped labyrinth that you can print or “walk” on the screen and suggests prompts for you to use as you take your meditative walk.
- Take out your finger labyrinth
If you don’t already have one, excellent instructions from Amy Hallman-Grout can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1s6u4c6wWM&app=desktop
“Walk” the labyrinth using the prompts from the previous link:
START As you move to the center of the flame, think about the word: Hope. What does it bring to mind? What do you think of?
IN THE CENTRE Pause and listen to God. The Bible reminds us that the Holy Spirit can fill us with hope. (Romans 15:13). What do you need hope for today? Ask God to fill you up with hope.
ON THE WAY OUT As you trace your way back out the flame, think about someone who needs hope this week, and ask God to fill them with the Holy Spirit.
- Walk your finger labyrinth to beautiful, meditative music:
Open the following link to listen to a wonderful Gregorian chant of Veni Creator Spiritus – Come Holy Ghost, the Maker, Come.
The words appear in English on the screen and can be used to focus your meditation.
The recording lasts for 3.28 minutes but can be set to loop if you would like your “walk” to be longer.
We hope you will try some of these activities and that you will find them a source of strength and comfort. We will be developing more resources for you to use at home and at outdoor labyrinths when this is once again possible.
