Silent Prayer Vigil and Walk the Labyrinth

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Bonnie Zaman

Sept. 26th was an amazing day, starting with prayers lead by Pastor James Lane, Founder/Minister Northend Church of Christ in Hartford, CT, and followed by an easy flow of people walking the Labyrinth at their own speed while reflecting on the ideals of peace and nonviolence as explained by our members of CNV Central CT Group.

Many of the participants commented on how the Labyrinth had an amazing effect upon their thinking processes, that when they started the Labyrinth their minds seemed to be all over the place, but by the time they completed the walk they felt calm and at peace, some even coming off the Labyrinth in tears. We were able to collect commitments and signed Pledges of Nonviolence as well.
