The tail end of the year is getting quite exciting. There “stuff” the Sheds are up to that we would never have dreamed of, not least a labyrinth for Littlebeck Chapel. We also never envisaged to growth of Sheds in North Yorkshire that there’s been and our friends in MATES Shed in Scarborough (weird bunch though they are) have just brought tidings of considerable (if not great) joy:-)
This strange and lovely thing is a labyrinth. For centuries they have been objects of mysticism, and aids to prayer, where the journey to the centre can be an allegorical journey by the soul by faith to the realisation of salvation through God and then a continuing of life sure in that knowledge.
Sleights Area Men’s’ Shed are creating this one for Littlebeck Chapel. It will be about 4 feet square.
We have the stones for the outline but, for the pathway we would like to invite anyone who would like to be part of this creation to select pebbles no more than an inch wide ( they may be longer but we have limited width within the pathway) to represent those they love (family, friends, the departed); like our Lord we have room for many souls!
Having collected your group, place them in a plastic bag and give them to us, we will include them within the heart. The project will get underway after Christmas and we would hope to complete it by Easter.
It was a delight to see Roger engrossed in labyrinth design last Thursday. Lots of pencil lead and runner involved. Rock up at any of the Sheds with stones.
