What Is A Labyrinth?
Labyrinths are pathways shaped into twisting, turning designs; they have been used as spiritual tools by Christians for at least 1,600 years.
     In today’s world, Christians walk labyrinths for prayer, meditation, help finding the quiet Center of their living, to facilitate calm and stillness in a hectic world, to find faithful clarity amidst life’s challenges and opportuneties, to listen for God, as a tool for health and wellness, and much more.
     An ongoing practice of labyrinth walking is a celebrated discipline for Christians seeking an authentic life of balanced wholeness in which intimate relationship with God is sought and valued.
     There is no right way to walk a labyrinth. You only have to enter and follow the path.  However, your walk can encompass a variety of attitudes.  It may be joyous or somber.  It might be thoughtful or prayerful.  You may use it as a walking meditation.
     When you walk a labyrinth choose your attitude.  From time to time choose a different attitude.  Make it serious, prayerful, or playful.  Play music or sing. Pray out loud.  Walk alone and with a crowd.  Notice the sky.  Listen to the sounds.  Most of all, be open to the various ways God can meet you

General guidelines for walking a labyrinth are:
     Focus:  Pause and wait at the entrance.  Become quiet and centered.
     Experience:  Walk purposefully.  Observe the process.  When you reach the center, stay there and focus several moments.  Leave when it seems appropriate.  Be attentive on the way out.
     Reflect:  After walking the labyrinth reflect back on your experience.  Use journaling or drawing to capture your experience.Type your paragraph here.

No more stone casting.
As the pastor I'm good at many things, some are not good things.
I am experienced at casting the first stone.  Judge not lest you be judged is even more difficult for me.  "Who are you to judge anothers' servant?" cuts me for I have been quick to judge. I read what Jesus said to the O So Holy, religious folks of his day who were so quick to judge and condemn, to call out sinners.  Jesus  doesn't need my help calling other people's fouls. 

Things I Like About the Presbyterian Church USA
PCUSA is an ALL people, inclusive denomination that knows we are are saved by God's grace - grace that is extended to others and not just the 'in' folks.

No one does mission better.  NOROC.org supported by the congregations of Palo Duro Presbytery is one example of the best.  Long term sustainable, Christ centered.
Solar Under the Sun supported by the congregations of the Synod of the Sun is another great mission. 

Christie Clark had been Presbyterian in her adult life.  But she grew up in another Church.  I asked her, “Why’d you move to a Presbyterian Church?”  “Because I had questions I could not even ask at my old church.”  It’s not always easy but I like a church where we can ask hard and uncomfortable questions.

Only by sticking to our convictions and sticking with each other can we hope to become anything like the body of Christ.  Presbyterians are a diverse bunch which insist on sticking together.  Good friends can disagree and still watch the others back.  The freedom I have in following Jesus I extend to others who I don't always agree with.
