Many, many thanks to everyone helped out at the Avon Fall Festival on September 28th! The community’s response to our plans for a neighborhood prayer garden including an outdoor labyrinth was amazing and encouraging. We gave out more than 200 balloons with our labyrinth logo, dozens of dog treats, lollipops, and talked with so many members of the community that we were hoarse by the end of the afternoon! Kids and adults alike loved walking our “temporary” labyrinth that was skillfully crafted by Jon Stellfox. Many neighbors offered to donate plants, time and prayers to help our vision for a beautiful contemplative space a reality in our little corner in Emsworth.
Special thanks to Bez Stellfox, Donna Hunter, Erin Williams, Dan Williams, Tom Smart, Marti Smart and everyone who helped make the day such a wonderful success! Keep watching your bulletin, newsletter and this blog for more information as the prayer garden moves forward.
